Longtime pal and TV news anchor Judy Woodruff recalls dishy meals with Nancy at one of the Beverly Hills restaurants she had enjoyed with her husband. “She loved to hear the latest stories about what was going on in Washington, in politics. And she never shied from expressing her own thoughts.”
And the former first lady kept a close eye on the Republican party, dismayed by the direction it has taken in recent years.
“She remained as sharp as ever and was aware of just about everything going on in Washington and in politics, but always was interested in knowing more,” says Woodruff. “I’ll never forget the time we spoke in 2008 just after the Republican nominee for president, Senator John McCain, had chosen Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate. I spoke with Mrs. Reagan on the phone, and her first comment was, ‘What in the world was he thinking in picking that woman?‘ ”
King adds that Mrs. Reagan was not at all pleased with the current crop of Republican candidates.
Imagine that! I don’t think that Palin will be mentioning the Reagans anytime soon. That has got to hurt.
Also and too, Tina Fey never bothered to watch the spoof that Palin made about Fey and Thirty Rock. The link is at Huffington Post but my computer freezes when I go there.
Talk about being inconsequential.
