Noonan's Wall Street Journal column, Declarations, has run since 2000, garnering millions of readers each week. Praised by Forbes as "the best op-ed column in America," the column won Noonan the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Commentary for her prescient and balanced analysis during the 2016 election. The prize committee cited Noonan, "For rising to the moment with beautifully rendered columns that connected readers to the shared virtues of Americans during one of the nation's most divisive political campaigns.
"[Peggy Noonan] is writing with such transparent conscience that I believe that she captures the American condition and the American voice....Peggy Noonan delivers, weekly, a reasonable approximation of what the better angels of our nature may (or are supposed to) sound like. Hers is an exhortatory idealism tempered by a rare common sense. She is perceptive, persuasive, principled and patriotic."
