Der eine ein echter Visionar, der andere ein nüchtener Praktiker. Ohne Reagan und Bush ware unsere Welt dunkler und Krieg wahrscheinlich noch heute kalt. Nach 45 bitteren Jahren ist durch ihr politisches Werk endlich wieder "zusammengewachsen, was zusammengehört".
"Suntem sortiti sa edpinedm unii de altii, scrisesem, ceea ce inseamna ca reprezentam sarcini rezolvabile unii pentru altii. Ín schimb titlul ales - Sortiti unii altora - accentuaza acea fatalitate prin care fosta-am legati unii de altii."
