Are we now considering Ivanka a "First Lady"?

I hope this not sound too partisan, because I don't mean it to be. BUT .........

The both two Bush wives were the most gracious along with Nancy Reagan. Easy three place tie.  

For the worst, clearly the "Pantsuit Princess" Hillary. Second worst, Lady Bird. All the rest were pretty average. The future looks promising.

Maybe I'm biased, but it doesn't sound partisan to me.  All good choices in my always humble opinion.

Michelle Obama. She started the vegetable garden at the White House and encouraged childen to start exercising. She tried to improve school lunches to stop the childhood obesity epidemic.

Melania. Despite the harassment by left wing media and left wing extremist she has held her own. She has remained classy as some Hollywood stars made low class comments about her young family

My favorite 1st !ady is Eleanor Roosevelt because of her husbands polio became a strong woman, did things during WWII that few woman of her time could do, & later was an important part & person in the establishing the UN. Her life was spent in doing things no other woman could do in her own time & should be an example to women everywhere of what you can do as a woman of intelligence & caring.
