Movie Stars and Politics

I totally love Clint Eastwood's movies. I love his characters and his directing. I hope the "talk" he made at the RNC will not mar his great legacy.
It's like the way I loved Paul Newman. HIS politics were too left-wing for me (I know, I know--y'all can't believe that), and I often saw him expounding on TV talk shows. It was obvious that he didn't really understand the issues and hadn't done his homework. I was really disillusioned.
But Movie stars are bigger than life because their roles are heroic, and their words are written by folks who aren't nearly as good-looking as they.
Reagan was a great politician (I didn't say a great PRESIDENT) because he was a better actor in real life than he was in the movies.
