Obama= Reagan

This is quite a long article but it is definitely worth reading. This piece from Newsweek is comparing Reagan and Obama. Although this superficially seems to be a futile exercise the notion that Reagan is a seminal President for the Republicans and that Obama could become one for the Demcorats is significant. This piece has an awful lot of excellent points about polarisation and the different ideological factions within the Democrats and the Republicans that would be very useful for a Unit 3 essay on parties.
