Ronald Reagan was an American actor and politician who served as the 40th President of the United States (1977 - 1981).

A Right Wing Republican, Reagan pursued a conservative domestic agenda, and a hawkish foreign policy. This included American intervention in Iran.

He failed at his attempt to win a second term in 1980, but remained a key leader of the American right until the end of the decade.

Reagan was the front runner to succeed Nixon in the Presidency. Popular with conservative activists, and winning two landslide victories as the Republican Governor of a heavily Democratic state made major assets.
