    Eleanor Roosevelt and Michelle Obama, of course, but I also liked Lady Bird Johnson for several reasons, one of them being that she actually tolerated Lyndon and secondly, her beautification of America by having flowers planted along highways.

    Rosalynn Carter is a very dignified lady and she championed mental health and equal rights.

    And for as much as we all feel about George Bush Jr., Laura Bush showed grace and dignity, I thought, and she promoted reading and she worked for HIV and AIDs awareness, I believe.

    I'd say my favorite First Lady would be Betty Ford for being outspoken about birth control, abortion rights, breast cancer awareness, gun control, equal rights, and addiction.

    I had to laugh at Elizabeth Monroe demanding that the staff call her 'Your majesty" - and here I thought Nancy Reagan was bad!

    Great topic, Ojibwa!
