Laura Bush is known for being a dignified, quiet first lady who was immensely popular during her husband’s two terms as POTUS. Her background in education and voracious love of reading helped millions of school children and adults become better readers.
Laura Bush was quiet, and growing up, was by no means political. A former teacher and a librarian, she came to be loved by the United States of America during a time of great tragedy.
Eleanor Roosevelt used her position as the First Lady of New York State and the First Lady of the United States of America to influence politics and advance the cause of equal rights for people of color and the rights of women and the underprivileged.
