Posted on 10/15/2012 11:31:22 AM PDT by bgill

As the 2012 presidential race enters its final weeks, LIFE.com looks back at America’s First Ladies across six decades of the 20th century. Here is a glimpse—through classic photos, as well as pictures that never ran in LIFE—into the public and private lives of the members of an uncommonly exclusive club, before, during and after their years in the White House.

Nice photos.

Not a boob belt, flip flops or a panty line on any of them.

It's awfully racist for Life magazine not including Mrs 0bama. I realize they went bankrupt but that's really no excuse to exclude the Wookiie.

Here’s the comparison of First Ladies that I find most definitive — its “Class vs. Crass” from HillBuzz:

For the most part, I think the seen-but-not-heard protocol is the best course for most FLOTUS, even the ones that I might agree with or appreciate. The husband was the one we elected (to this point, anyway) and she has no legal function. The fact she has a staff and a budget just flummoxes me.

It will be really interesting when the US eventually elects a woman as POTUS. I just can’t see her husband taking some ornamental, non-Constitutional, position in order to be seen “doing something important.” Maybe I’ll be surprised...
