    That's really all he was.  His policies weren't well known when he was elected in '80.  What he did in CA wasn't that well known except to Californians. His popularity was his acting ability played to a very appreciative media and duly disseminated to the pub base who ate it up like candy. If he had failed in his bid for the presidency in 1980, I'd bet that his natural move would have been as a precursor to limbaugh on the radio.

    A learning experience is one of those things that says, 'You know that thing you just did? Don't do that.' Douglas Adams
