Nancy Reagan sees dead people. In an interview with Vanity Fair to be published this week, the former first lady talks about her relationship with the Obamas and Bushes, her time in Washington, and her husband’s ghost. “It sounds strange but…I see Ronnie,” she says. “At nighttime, if I wake up, I think Ronnie’s there, and I start to talk to him.”
Other tidbits from the interview:
- Michelle Obama called her for “advice.”
- She thinks President Obama should have invited her to the ceremony at which he reversed the Bush administration’s stem cell research policy. “I would have gone, and you know I don’t like to travel.”
- She thought Don Regan, her husband’s chief of staff, was a “really terrible man,” and conspired with George HW Bush and DNC chairman Bob Strauss to get him fired.
