Having a handsome, charismatic actor go from a minor movie star to one of America’s most influential presidents is an almost unthinkable scenario. However, for the fortieth president, Ronald Reagan this was his reality. Reagan was an incredible speaker and was dubbed “The Great Communicator” for his powerful and well delivered speeches.
