Rating the First Ladies
John Roberts talked about his book Rating the First Ladies: The Women Who Influenced the Presidency, published by Citadel Press. In the book, he analyzes the first ladies as political partners rather than wives and mothers. During his presentation, the author detailed the personal lives and administrative influence of several first ladies, including Nancy Reagan, Hillary Clinton, Eleanor Roosevelt, Jackie Kennedy, and Lady Bird Johnson. He also responded to questions from members of the audience at the Bent Creek Country Club. “Skeletons and Scandals: First Ladies and Political Crisis” was the annual dinner of The James Buchanan Foundation for the Preservation of Wheatland. close
