I was starting to feel old. This was in the Breaking News sidebar for three hours before anybody else had anything to say.

And now I find that I must have Alzheimer’s, because I really don’t remember Shevardnadze ending the Cold War while President Reagan had the good grace to stay out of the way and just give credit where credit is due, after the fact.

Well Reagan had his angles to exploit...And Shevardnadze was kinda like that burr under the saddle to the old USSR...

Andropov and Gorbachev were certainly caught with their stuff between two halves of that bun, and the world opinion was about ready to chow down...

They soon realized the PR battle was lost, and that they were not going to be able to put the Genie back into their bottle...
