Gorbechev was a relatively young, well-educated, and widely traveled man. After he was chosen, the U.S.- Soviet relationship changed dramatically. Gorbechev impressed foreign leaders, such as Reagan’s friend, Margaret Thatcher, as a dynamic reformer determined to radically alter the Soviet political and economic system. Thatcher said that Gorbechev is “someone with whom we can do business.” Gorbechev was motivated to radically alter Soviet policies at home and abroad.
