  • Bess Truman. She understood that Harry was the president. She stayed out of the spot light in Missouri and let him be president.

  • Wow, you guys are old.......
    Personally, I didn't pay much attention to them. I'd say Barbara and Laura Bush. Maybe it has to do with the fact that They both had good personalities or maybe it is because I'm a Texan and they are and were more familiar to me. Michele Obama is just to controversial for me. I don't see her as doing good, just causing friction.

  • Dolly Madison

    Answer by mama04inID at 9:00 AM on Jul. 14, 2011

  • Eleanor Roosevelt made the First Lady position what it is now & was a remarkable woman (i wrote a paper on her once).
    Edith Bolling Galt Wilson really took her duty seriously & its possible that she was the president while Wilson was recovering from a stroke. its debated how much of a role she took on.
    Dolly Madison went above & beyond to save face for America & priceless paintings and other objects...she put her life on the line.

  • Laura Bush is child left behind? SIGH..

    What does Laura Bush have to do with a program sponsored by Ted Kennedy? Just because Hillary did all the work while her lech was in office, doesn't mean that's normal.
