Description
Peter Hannaford discusses his book, “The Reagans, A Political Portrait.” He says that he set out to write a chronicle and journey of Ronald Reagan to the White House. Hannaford claims that Reagan did not want to close any options once he left California and that he was a very popular speaker. He talks about the support by Harry O’Connor and Efrem Zimbalist, and Reagan’s conservatism. Hannaford says that Reagan’s success in 1980 was a result of having gone through the campaign process in 1976 and that there were not as many surprises. He shares that Democrats rushed to Reagan saying they wanted him to run for president and that Hannaford believes that Reagan has good instincts. Hannaford goes on to say that Reagan makes decisions privately and that he likes to hear all sides of an issue before coming up with a decision. There are tracking problems throughout the video.
