"The President misspoke." The official said it in a hushed tone as though committing some form of blasphemy, and immediately added that he should probably not be saying this, and that it was on very deep background. He was trying to explain how it was that on Nov. 7, President Clinton had said, "North Korea cannot be allowed to develop a nuclear bomb," whereas now the Administration was pursuing a compromise that might "grandfather" any bomb that North Korea already had.

If I had a person as devoted to me as Mrs. Reagan is to President Reagan, I would consider myself very fortunate. Her actions were very supportive and loving. I say this as a person who did not vote for President Reagan and who, after all, disagrees with the President's policies. But I am impressed with Mrs. Reagan's 10,000% backing of her husband. Perhaps some of the criticism of the First Lady is in fact based on bruised macho egos. Washington is a man's turf. And as former Press Secretary Sheila Tate said about her former boss, Nancy Reagan, some of the flap about Nancy's role in Irangate arises from macho types who are not accustomed to dealing with a powerful woman: a woman of substance and great intelligence.
