I'm not sure if this would be enough to pass or fail in you opinion haha.
Good enough for me but it was really Reagan who deserved that Nobel. Notice that it never goes to anybody even remotely associated with the right. It's devolved into a joke, especially after the Carter/Gore/Obama Nobels. I'm actually amazed that Clinton doesn't have one.
