For me, a First Lady is a very much respected side line for the President. She isn't showy but still confident and compassionate about issues. I don't think I ever have warmed up to Laura Bush. It's not that I *don't* like her but rather that I don't see a side outside of her other than a stiff, less than gentle, rather pouty looking lady....It's rather interesting too, because a friend and I got into this very discussion and she is rather confused why I don't like her because she tells me *I* am a lot like her in the sense that we both are stay at home moms, supportive of our children et. al. And I told her that maybe that is just it, she is too much like me. I want to admire/look up to someone to aspire too not someone just like me?!
BTW, the First Lady I most admired was Barbara Bush. The mom of all moms look, always confident, a story teller and joviel, fun side to her too.
