Ronald Reagan: Uncommon Cents

In Ronald Reagan's first televised budget speech as president, he used a handful of change to illustrate the current value of the dollar.

"It takes an actor to do that," remarked a rival Democrat with grudging admiration. "Carter would have emphasized all the wrong words. Ford would have fumbled and dropped the cash. And Nixon would have pocketed it."

[Reagan was a registered Democrat until 1962.]
