Synopsis: With several journal articles on the topic to his credit (but no affiliation cited), Watson counters the view that "the unknown institution" of First Lady has not played a central role in US politics. Mrs. Clinton is regarded as the heir to a long legacy of influential women in the White House rather than as an anomaly. The author concludes with advice to future first ladies. Contains tables ranking the presidential partners according to various criteria, profiles of them with key dates and education, but only four photos.

From Booklist: This handy guide provides a fascinating glimpse into the cultural, political, and historical evolution of the unofficial, but increasingly significant, office of the First Lady. Although the women who have occupied the White House range considerably in age, personality, and social commitment, each individual presidential spouse has exerted her own unique brand of influence on both her husband and the course and flavor of national policy. Utilizing a breezy style designed to appeal to a broad range of readers, the author outlines the history of the office, the official duties of the First Lady, distinct approaches to the office, public opinion and the First Lady, and the future of the office. By far the most intriguing chapter is devoted to ranking the First Ladies in accordance with a variety of criteria, including age, education, background, popularity and charisma, fitness for the office, activism, and success. Brimming with engrossing facts, data, and anecdotes, this overview of the long-neglected role of the First Lady will be a welcome addition to both political-science and women's-studies collections.
