Yes but only Dubya's wife killed a fellow teenager in high school. Almost no contribution to America other than designer clothes. Pity.

Abagail Adams for her strong views against slavery and her conviction to live her views by barring other presidents from entering her home if they owned slaves.

Michele Obama.  She had it all.  Highly educated from top institutions.  Great fashion sense. Wonderful mother. Born in the United States so she did not have to enter illegally and  she never killed anyone in high school like some first ladies.

Hard to choose. I would have to say both Laura Bush and Michelle Obama were.

Michelle Obama without a doubt. Class, style, integrity, intelligence, compassion and supportive. She did a job that most women wouldn't want and did it very very well. Unlike the one that occupies the White House today.
