Reagan ally delivers political message

(CNN) – Former President Ronald Reagan's chief of staff, James Baker, delivered a message to the politicians of today, urging them to work together.

"Ronald Reagan was a master at reaching across the aisle for solutions to our nation's problems," Baker said Sunday on the 100th anniversary of the late president's birth. "We must re-learn that as citizens of a democracy, it is okay to voice our disagreements, but at the end of the day we have to come together to solve problems rather than cynically rely on them for partisan advantage."
