As the nation commemorates 100 years since the birth of Ronald Reagan, we look back at the late president’s legacy with Edwin Meese III, who served alongside Reagan for most of Reagan’s political life. Meese was chief of staff to Reagan during their days in the California governor’s office. Meese later served as senior counselor to President Reagan and later as U.S. Attorney General. How did Reagan convince a reluctant Meese to work for him back in 1966? What did Meese see in the early years to suggest Reagan would be a strong presidential candidate? How did Reagan beat the odds to win the 1980 election? What convinced Reagan that he would find economic success through tax cuts? How did he determine the Cold War was winnable and not just manageable? How did he inspire America to believe in itself again? And how should Reagan be remembered? We discuss it all in a great conversation with Ed Meese, who is now a Distinguished Fellow at the Heritage Foundation.
