I think when history records the major political accomplishments of the United States in the last 80 years, they will point to the Democratic issues: the New Deal, Civil Rights, Women's Rights, and environmental protection. The short list might include Social Security and the space program. Those are all Democratic accomplishments. What are the five or so biggest Republican accomplishments over the last 80 years? Reagan's role in helping to end the Cold War is the only one I can think of.
