The last one is powerful due to corruption and criminal activity not even close to the others.

Eleanor Roosevelt was the most powerful. Jackie Kennedy was the most popular.

Hillary Clinton: Lied under oath, obstructor of justice, money launderer, let people in Benghazi die, etc. etc.

Shillery; prominent, as in; sticking out easily seen or noticed! Gender doesn't make anyone important, especially Killery! If this Quiz factoid stated, criminal behavior, she would fit that profile, for sure!

The last one, Hitlery, was by far the most criminal of all first ladies.

You could have skipped Hillery as her focus was on killing babies not women's rights!

I disagree with these, what about Nancy Reagan and Laura Bush, both just as fashionalble as Jackie O and Nancy was a close a confidante to Reagan. How about Barbara Bush?? Why only Democrat First Ladies? In history, the only three I agree with is Dolly Madison, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Jackie Kennedy.

My choice for your list would be Abigail Adams. Brave and brilliant, she not only saved the much prized painting of George Washington when the British burned the White House; she also raised a President, her beloved son, John Quincy Adams. Reading the letters, written over their lifetimes, between Abigail and John Adams gives real insight into these two remarkable people.

Eleanor would be my pick, but I am an Australian. She and I would have made beautiful Music together I bet.
