Events of February 26 in THE REAGAN YEARS:

1986:  Robert Penn Warren is named the Poet Laureate of the United States. He remarks, "I don't expect you'll hear me writing any poems to the greater glory of Ronald and Nancy Reagan. Why should I?"
1987:  The Tower Commission releases its report on the Iran-Contra scandal. Everyone involved gets a share of the blame, and there are some less than positive words about those who avoided involvement too. But strangely, a remarkable amount of blame is given to Donald T. Regan, who opposed the Iran deal from the beginning.
1988:  George Bush proclaims that he will always believe in Jesus Christ as his personal savior, speaking to an audience of evangelical ministers. Bush's efforts to cozy up to the religious right end up earning scorn even from conservative pundits.
