Someone has rightly said that behind every great president is his warm, social, civic-minded spouse (think Michelle Obama, Laura Bush, and Hillary Clinton!) Gone are the days when the first lady was solely a goodwill ambassador of her president husband. Over the years, the first ladies of America has managed to break the shackles of that stereotype, now emerging as an epitome of beauty with brains and the power to influence society and country at large. That is right! Modern day history is rife with many exemplary first ladies who instead of underplaying their lives and hiding behind the shadow of their powerful husbands have dazzled the world with their intellect, splendor, humor, and appeal. They are the first ladies who refused to shy away from the center stage. They are the first ladies who confidently took on the world stage to voice their opinions and oppose the wrongdoings. American presidents have been lucky enough to marry such forward-thinking, progressive, open-minded beauties whom America reveres as its first ladies.
