Ronald Reagan carried a conservative vision of America to the White House, where his administration gave it life. Peggy Noonan followed Reagan to Washington as his speechwriter— and gave his vision voice. As speech writer for George Bush during his Presidential campaign, Noonan dispelled her candidate's "wimpy" image and replaced it with one of quiet strength by coining such eloquent phrases as "a thousand points of light" and "a kinder, gentler nation." In this memoir, Noonan shows us the world behind the words with sharp, vivid portraits of President Reagan and a host of Washington' s movers and shakers. Rendered in the same vivid, eloquent style that earned Ronald Reagan the designation "the Great Communicator," Noonan delivers a candid portrait of the Reagan White House in this stylish, sensitive memoir that pursues the question, "Who's running things here anyway?"
