    Obama Evokes Reagan as Democrats Woo GOP Voters

    On one of the biggest nights of the Democratic National Convention, President Barack Obama evoked the words of a Republican hero — former President Ronald Reagan.

    Obama repeatedly summoned Reagan's hope and optimism Wednesday night as Democrats try to attract disenchanted Republican voters uneasy about Donald Trump's claim to the GOP mantle and fearful about a possible presidency.

    As he made the case that Democrat Hillary Clinton is more qualified to serve in the White House, Obama drew a stark contrast with Trump's dark vision of the country. He reminded voters that Reagan famously called America "a shining city on a hill." Trump, he said, calls the United States "a divided crime scene" and hopes to win votes by scaring people over immigration and crime.
