I’m not surprised because Reagan is very popular with many Americans, but as I said, if there were any more additions to Mount Rushmore (and I don’t think there should be, mainly because it would be a giant national argument), the two best additions would be FDR and Eisenhower. One Democrat and one Republican. Eisenhower is much more deserving than Reagan — not just because Ike was a solid President, but also because of his leadership during World War II. I don’t think that Jefferson is on Mount Rushmore because he was necessarily a great President. He wasn’t. I think he’s on the mountain because of his life as a whole. Eisenhower fits the bill even better.
