On a recent weekday at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum, fifth-grader Edwin Mendoza's eyes were opened to the 19th-century world of Queen Victoria. At the same time, J.J. Albert, a 22-year-old Cal Lutheran University senior, was poring over once-private documents on the 40th president's immigration policy for his final project.

With speculation swirling anew about whether he intends to join the field of Republican presidential candidates, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie referred a crowd in California on Tuesday to his previous comments on the matter, strung together in a Web video. The video, on the Politico website, represented his "answers back to back to back together on the question of running for the presidency," he told hundreds of Republicans gathered at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley — several of whom asked him to run. Among the responses on the video: "I'm 100% certain I'm not going to run," "I don't want to run" and "I don't feel ready in my heart to be president.

One of four original copies of the Magna Carta is the centerpiece of a new exhibition at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum in Simi Valley. The exhibition ends June 20 and will include scenes from life in England in 1215, the year the Magna Carta was recorded. The document, considered important because it guaranteed basic freedoms and rights, is owned by the Lincoln Cathedral in Lincolnshire, England.

It's hard for Marco Rubio to escape speculation about his prospects for the Republican vice presidential nomination, so the Florida senator joked about it Tuesday on a California trip aimed at raising his national profile. "I have no interest in serving as vice president for anyone who could possibly live all eight years of the presidency," Rubio told a gathering at the Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley. Laughter spread across the room. A Latino newcomer from a large swing state, Rubio, 40, ranks near the top of many lists of his party's contenders for presidential running mate, even as he insists he will stay in the Senate.

Declaring the nation is at a critical juncture, Jon Huntsman will tie himself to Ronald Reagan as he launches his campaign for the presidency Tuesday. The former Utah governor and ambassador to China, in an announcement speech in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty, is expected to warn that for the first time in America's history, the next generation will inherit a weaker nation than the one before it. "This is totally unacceptable and totally un-American," he is to say, according to excerpts of his remarks released by his campaign.

White House hopefuls hesitant to dive into the race as early as in previous cycles have spurred organizers of what was to be the first debate of the campaign to push the California event from May to September. The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation, which was hosting the debate on May 2 with media partners NBC and Politico, will announce Wednesday that it is shifting the debate in Simi Valley to Sept. 14. "Although there will be a long and impressive list of Republican candidates who eventually take the field, too few have made the commitment thus far for a debate to be worthwhile in early May," Reagan Foundation executive director John Heubusch said in a statement, NBC reported.

When Nancy Reagan, aided by Marines from Camp Pendleton, lays a wreath at her husband's tomb Sunday, it will be to commemorate the centennial of his birth. But in a nod to historical accuracy and to the Great Communicator's genial humor, staffers at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library are referring to the day just as he would ? not as his 100th birthday, but as "the 61st anniversary of his 39th. " "He loved that line," said John Heubusch, executive director of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation, organizer of centennial activities that over the next few days will bring about 10,000 people to the newly renovated hilltop library in Simi Valley.
