Ron Reagan to Speak at Democratic Convention

Ron Reagan, the son of the late former President Ronald Reagan, will be speaking at the Democratic National Convention in Boston. His purpose: generating support for stem cell research.

Good for him. Ron Reagan delivered one of the best eulogies to his father--getting in a jab at President Bush in the process.

Dad was also a deeply, unabashedly religious man. But he never made the fatal mistake of so many politicians wearing his faith on his sleeve to gain political advantage. True, after he was shot and nearly killed early in his presidency, he came to believe that God had spared him in order that he might do good. But he accepted that as a responsibility, not a mandate. And there is a profound difference.

He also has been critical of Bush and his Administration on the war in Iraq. Check out this interview with him in the New York Times. And his comments on Larry King Live.

Ron says he won't be critical of the Administration in his DNC speech. We bet he delivers at least one more jab--with charm.
