A Statesman, not a Mere Politician: Margaret Thatcher Dead at 87

The World-Changing Margaret Thatcher by Paul Johnson at the WSJ: Not since Catherine the Great has there been a woman of such consequence.
'Margaret Thatcher had more impact on the world than any woman ruler since Catherine the Great of Russia. Not only did she turn around—decisively—the British economy in the 1980s, she also saw her methods copied in more than 50 countries. "Thatcherism" was the most popular and successful way of running a country in the last quarter of the 20th century and into the 21st.'
The 'Iron Lady' died on Monday of a stroke. RIP.

Even the left-leaning, 'falling over on its left side' Kansas City Star had something kind to say.
