After the Contra affair along with his continuation of aid to Pinochet and Pol Pot, I cant vote for Reagan. However I dont know enough about Clinton to vote for him either.

Reagans foreign policies were horrible. He supported Saddam Hussein, and gave him arms and other weapons to destroy Iran.

This continued, even after the 1979 Iraq-Iran war.

Bill Clinton had better foreign policy, economic policy, and social policy. He also addressed the AIDS epidemic, while Reagan laughed it off and ignored it until it became worse and worse. Reagan was awful in general.
