Hillary Clinton by far was the most determined to effect change. She was not content to be quiet & host events. 

Roselyn Carter however brought a sense of softness & serenity to her position. Her poise and composer were definitely inspirational.

I believe Hillary Clinton was our best First Lady. When she began her tenure as First Lady, she immediately went to work on creating a national health care plan... until she was told to go back into the kitchen and bake cookies! I have met her on several occasionas and believe that people are intimidated by her keen intellect. She is upfront, takes a beating and keeps standing, stood by Bill despite her humiliation, did more than any other Secretary of State in American history, was certainly a good Senator of New York (a state in which I live). Yes, she made mistakes and owned them. We all should follow that example. People in glass houses...

I think Obama is certainly the best First Lady since Eleanor Roosevelt.

We will not see her equal in the White House for a very long time.

She had grace, class, and certainly an articulate, passionate speaker,

and advocate for a number of causes. A true national treasure!

I think Melania will be the best.  Hopefully people will give her a chance.  She's my favorite so far.
