    Cool ...would have made Ronald Reagan relish

    Is this sentence correct:

    Thespians wander throughout the scenes spitting the kind of conservative verbiage that would have made Ronald Reagan really relish.

    My main doubt is referring to the use of the verb "to make" in the sense of an action that kind of force someone to do or to feel something specific.

    Thanks.

    It should say "that Ronald Regan would have really relished."
