  •  I'm very happy with Michele Obama. (6+ / 0-)

    She's smart, outgoing and is doing what looks to be a fine job of raising their girls. She has grace, always a welcome trait in First Ladies.

    As a child of the depression, I truly admired Eleanor Roosevelt who seemed so down to earth and aware of ways to use her influence for the good. I felt you could sit down and have a real conversation with her about ordinary life.

    I think Jacquie was fun to watch. And she did some marvelous work in WH restoration. I loved that there were youngsters about the same age as mine in the White House. I think a good many young marrieds with children became more interested in life in the White House because they could identify on that level. That's something that I think holds true today.
