<p>Offering her memories of the late Nancy Reagan on Monday&rsquo;s <em>CBS Evening News</em>, <em>60 Minutes</em> correspondent and former White House reporter Lesley Stahl voiced her approval for how the late First Lady often pushed husband and President Ronald Reagan<strong> &ldquo;to stop talking as much as he was on the social issues&rdquo; </strong>like the abortion and the Second Amendment.</p>

<p>Stahl was initially asked by anchor Scott Pelley what she &ldquo;remember[s] about Nancy Reagan&rdquo; and she responded by first noting <strong>&ldquo;how much she grew as First Lady because she came in and she was interested in clothes and shopping, and by the end, she had become one of the President&#39;s foreign policy advisers, domestic policy advisers, image guru, and she just developed and you watched it happen.&rdquo;</strong></p>
