The former First Lady shared her thoughts about the Democratic president in a recent interview.
Wired PR News – Former First Lady Nancy Reagan stood by President Barack Obama Tuesday as he signed the Ronald Reagan Centennial Commission Act. As reported by Yahoo! News, Reagan, who is also scheduled to be present at the unveiling of a statue dedicated to her husband and former president Ronald Reagan, and have lunch with current First Lady Michelle Obama, recently shared her thoughts about the Democratic president in an interview with Vanity Fair.
Reagan, who is noted in the report to be a stem-cell research advocate, is quoted as stating of not receiving an invitation to a ceremony for the President’s reversal of the policy enacted by former President George Bush, “I would have gone, and you know I don’t like to travel…. Politically it would have been a good thing for [President Obama] to do. Oh, well, nobody’s perfect. He called and thanked me for working on it, but he could have gotten more mileage out of it.”
Reagan is also quoted as stating that she “thought Obama ran the best campaign I have ever known — disciplined, well-organized, very, very good. I was very impressed.”
