Today's the 100th birthday of Ronald Reagan, America's 40th President.

President Reagan, widely referred to as "The Great Communicator," is also a particularly interesting study of the President as Orator-in-Chief. Many of his iconic speeches, such as his message to Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev (below), can be found on YouTube today.

To celebrate the Ronald Reagan Foundation has created a host of retrospective videos paying tribute to the former President which are featured on the YouTube homepage today. The first video, a tribute narrated by former Senator Fred Thompson, shows speech clips that showcase Reagan's wit, storytelling abilities and impeccable timing.
