    Re: Favorite First Lady

    For the most part I had trouble picking a favorite because they are all quality women, Michelle Obama being the one that hasn't really built a complete history yet. I had to go with Nancy Reagan being first because of her class and dignity, with Laura Bush being a close second because of her work towards education, but I hate playing favorites and this whole list has contributed much to their postitions over the years.

    I liked Laura Bush much more than her husband. I liked Betty Ford, and while a lifelong Democrat, I really came to appreciate Gerald Ford later.

    I never warmed to Nancy Reagan. I was too young to think much of Jackie Kennedy other than she was pretty and gracious.

    Lady Bird was a good First Lady.

    It really is a personal choice, so I can't fault people for their opinions, Nancy Reagan was never seen as warm by some in public, but she was very dignified.

    Dignified in what way? When she was consulting with Miss Cleo?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Didn't say she was sane now did I? What I liked about her was that things were done with class, she wasn't overly political, and proper protocol mattered.

    It was her bearing. She stood tall and erect and proper, wore fashionable clothes that where not overly flashy, and always seemed in control of herself.

    Re: Favorite First Lady

    I couldn't take Nancy Reagan because the "Just say No" thing was dumb and pointless. I'd probably have to go with Laura Bush, though she has the advantage of being recent and me knowing what she had done. But Laura Bush was probably the best thing about the Bush administration. Michelle Obama I think it's too early to say anything about how she was as first lady, and I haven't seen her do anything worthwhile.

    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
