What I Saw at the Revolution: A Political Life in the Reagan Era

From Elaine Pasquali
Title: What I Saw at the Revolution: A Political Life in the Reagan Era
Author: Peggy Noonan
Ms. Noonan was a speech writer in the Reagan White House. She continually affirms her love and admiration for the President while describing him  as a man who did not lead but acceded to his advisors’ suggestions; did not stand up for those who were loyal to him; seemed to have no substance and a lack of curiosity behind the twinkle in his eyes. She admits she never could totally understand him, yet described him as the best President  since FDR. I remain confused as to why she so admired the President. Worth reading for the insight into the politics and in-fighting in the Reagan administration.
