Flashback Time

Ann Althouse links to a 1984 post-election piece by the Times.  I was struck by these paragraphs:
As Mr. Reagan watched tallies of the vote on television, reporters asked him about the possibility of a summit meeting with the Soviet Union.
''Yes,'' he said, ''it's time for us to get together and talk about a great many things and try to clear the air and suspicions between us so we can get down to the business of reducing, particularly, nuclear weapons.''
I guess he did foreshadow the summit meeting at which he proposed doing away with such weapons entirely.  Not something most conservatives like to remember.
