In Praise of Peggy Noonan

From National Journal:

lately she has hit a whole new stride. I almost said “found her voice,” but that phrase is now suspect, and the fact is, Noonan’s voice hasn’t changed at all. What she’s found is her subject: a wild presidential race that plays to all her strengths. For months, she’s been noticing things nobody else notices, long before they bubble up in the collective consciousness. They tend to be hiding in plain sight. She was way ahead of the pack, for instance, in nailing what may be Obama’s greatest strength, his simple presence.
