„I’m the one who knows him best, and I was the only person in the White House who had absolutely no agenda of her own — except helping him.“

—  Nancy Reagan, buch My Turn

Quelle: My Turn (1989), Ch. 4 : First Lady, Dragon Lady
Kontext: I was not the power behind the throne.
Did I ever give Ronnie advice? You bet I did. I’m the one who knows him best, and I was the only person in the White House who had absolutely no agenda of her own — except helping him.
And so I make no apologies for telling him what I thought. Just because you’re married doesn’t mean you have no right to express your opinions. For eight years I was sleeping with the president, and if that doesn’t give you special access, I don’t know what does!
So yes, I gave Ronnie my best advice — whenever he asked for it, and sometimes when he didn’t. But that doesn’t mean he always took it. Ronald Reagan has a mind of his own.
