I always loved Jacqueline Kennedy - she became First Lady the year I turned 13.  But my all-time, hands-down favorite is Michelle Obama.  Haters gonna hate but "when they go low, we go high!"  ❤️

Jackie Kennedy. She was not only a stylish and dignified First Lady but at such a young age, she led our nation through a most horrendous and tragic time with the assassanation of JFK.

Are we now considering Ivanka a "First Lady"?

Eleanor Roosevelt! Hung in there and helped out her husband AND her country while still taking care of her family! What a woman! She's a rockstar!

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.
