Summary
From the number one New York Times bestselling author of The Residence, the groundbreaking work of journalism about the White House staff, comes an intimate, news-making look at the true modern power brokers of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue: the first ladies, from Jackie Kennedy to Michelle Obama.Holding one of the most underestimated and challenging positions in the world, the first lady of the United States must be many things: an inspiring leader with a forward-thinking agenda of her own, a savvy politician skilled at navigating the treacherous rapids of Washington, a wife and mother operating under constant scrutiny, and an able CEO running the private side of the White House. Drawing on a wide array of untapped, candid sources—from the former first ladies themselves to their political advisers, friends, family members, and residence staff—Kate Andersen Brower, the New York Times bestselling author who covered President Barack Obama’s first term, now tells the stories of the ten remarkable women who have defined the role for more than a half century.First ladies make up the world’s most elite sorority, with members including Jacqueline Kennedy, Lady Bird Johnson, Pat Nixon, Betty Ford, Rosalynn Carter, Nancy Reagan, Barbara Bush, Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush, and Michelle Obama. With stories ranging from the heartwarming to the shocking and tragic, Brower discusses the first ladies’ rivalries and friendships with one another—revealed in letters never published before—and explores everything from their political causes to their public and private relationships with their husbands. She also offers a detailed, insightful new portrait of Hillary Clinton, one of the most-watched first ladies of all time, asking what her tumultuous years in the White House may tell us about her own historic presidential run . . . and what life could be like with the nation’s first “First Gentleman.”
