President-Elect Barack Obama has called former First Lady Nancy Reagan to voice his regret over making a “careless and off handed remark” about her during his first press conference since winning the U.S. presidency in Tuesday’s election, Politico reports.
At yesterday’s press conference, a reporter asked Obama if he’d talked to all the “living” presidents, and Obama replied, “I have spoken to all of them who are living,” adding: “I didn’t want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about doing any sÃ©ances.”
According to former White House chief of staff Donald T. Regan, Mrs. Reagan, who is now 87, frequently consulted with astrologers when making scheduling plans during her husband’s presidency.
