He said he would vote for anyone who could beat the current US President.Mr Reagan also said he was angered over the Bush administration’s restriction of federal funding for human embryonic stem cell research.“It’s shameful,” he said. “We’re not talking about foetuses, human beings being killed. We’re talking about collections of cells in a petri dish that are never ever going to be a human being.”<br>Mr Reagan said he expected his mother to continue to speak out in favour of stem cell research.Nancy Reagan has long argued that such work could lead to cures for a number of diseases like the Alzheimer’s that afflicted her husband.
