orchid,
You won't be voting 4 the President or Romney but some of the First Lady's have made huge contributions to their husband's terms. Millard Fillmore's wife Abigail started the White House Library. Say nothing of Eleanor Roosevelt, etc.

Certainly jabber, some of the First Ladies stand on their own, just as individuals.

Eleanor has my admiration because I doubt towards the latter years, her marriage with Frank R. was great. So she went out and did stuff on her own. Good for her!!

We have some (not many equivalencies) in Canada. We did have a female Prime Minister of Canada, Kim Campbell for a short time. She actually was a young lawyer long ago at a law firm that I worked.

Hi orchid,
There's a great deal of merit in what you say. I agree. We cannot vote for a candidate's mate only. IMHO their mates do add to the ticket, however. And many of the past 1st ladies' have done much to admire.
