What is the first lady’s role in the country?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on June 21, 2004
“Supportive. Supporting their spouse, just like anyone else.”
“She should play a role of leadership and motherhood to the country.”
“She’s the hostess to the rest of the world.”
“She should be the hostess of the White House, but I don’t think she should be required to make political statements of her own. They’re almost always going to be the same as the president’s, anyway.”
