Who??? Reagan, or President Shevardnadze???

From what I recall, Shevardnadze knew what had to be done, what had to be sacrificed to achieve those goals...

Reagan, for what he could do was always in the passenger seat on this issue, and stepped up to recognize this effort at the appropriate time...

Yes, a lot of people probably do not remember a lot of this going on...But they are about to get an education...

I remember him as Gorbachev’s foreign minister. He was a leading figure on the world stage during Reagan’s presidency and the collapse of the USSR.

“I don’t think anybody else around here ever heard of this guy.”

Shevardnadze was the public face of the Soviet Union and then breakaway Georgia, so he is a very familiar face for those of us who kept up with the news of foreign affairs in earlier decades. Shevardnadze was often complementary of President Reagan in the aftermath of the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

I remember hearing his name a long time ago when I was a kid but I had no idea who he was.

Now I do. :)
