In a book, The 776 Stupidest Things Ever Said, Peggy is cited for the following pearl:

"I first saw [President Reagan] as a foot, highly polished brown cordovan wagging merrily on a hassock. I spied it through the door. It was a beautiful foot, sleek. Such casual elegance and clean lines! But not a big foot, not formidable, maybe a little frail. I imagined cradling it in my arms, protecting it from unsmooth roads."

From "Peggy, We Hardly Knew Ye" a memoir by Monica Finch and Gloria R. Lalumia of the young Peggy Noonan as they knew her in high school, college and beyond. But not nearly as far into the ether as she got.
