I'm not sure what you understand under a "good leader" but R. W. Reagan built his name and made all his riches in "communications" (first, as a PR communicator for big corporations; He had it all - important look (a.k.a presidential), skills to read a Teleprompter/memorize lines on the glories of free enterprise while GE was busy fixing prices and selling to government ashtrays for bomber crews for $500 a pop). No wonder he and his communication skills were noticed by certain political forces and he was launched into governor' & presidential chairs to do exactly the same thing he did as a PR guy for GE - look important, read teleprompter, extol virtues of free enterprise + little bit of a tough talk. People loved it. Never mind progressing Alzheimer. But did people loved it because Reagan lead them to love it? Or Reagan did "communicate" things people are trained by "biology&culture" to love & respect - expression of dominant importance, tough talk, virile selfishness (a.k.a dominance)? Nature doesn't train to revere "free enterprise" and hierarchy of wealth but a good communicator can dissolve these things in the swill people do like (on biological level). Reagan era results were/are beyond expectations (for the shareholders of USA LLC).
