A survey of academics has found that Eleanor Roosevelt was the nation's best first lady. Michelle Obama ranks fifth.
The findings from the Siena College/C-SPAN poll were released Saturday.
Hillary Clinton dropped from fourth to sixth since the last survey in 2008.

Upon hearing that Michelle was chosen as the fifth Best Lady, Obama reflexively responded with, "that ain't no lady, it's the woman I arranged this sham marriage with to hide the fact that I'm gay".
Reasons why survey is a total farce.
*Article is written by the AP. Strike 1.
*That they equate scholars with academics .Strike 2
*Three of the top Five First Ladies are Democrats, Abigail Adams, Dolly Madison both politically anachronistic.Strike 3
*The mere fact that Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama appear in the top 5 as we know them to be is reason enough to disparage the survey. Strike 4.
*Siena College as the source of the survey is notorious for being left-wing. Strike 5
*Sotero's status as decidedly non-eligible as President has her showing up even as the Worst First Lady is moot.Strike 6
*Name one item of First Lady-type behavior that would have Michelle eligible to be included on the list. Strike 7
I never knew an “academic” that knew much about the real world ..
The reason Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton are on the list is because the “scholars” questioned have no idea who the First Ladies were before Jackie Kennedy. Although it appears that they watched enough movies to know who Eleanor Roosevelt was.
“Academic” is just a polite way that communists/marxists describe themselves.Spawn of Satan is a more accurate way of describing them in my opinion.
I always knew she was very liberal but I saw a show on maybe
“The History Channel” maybe somewhere else that made me think she was an outright communist.
I think Hillary is too. I think Michelle probably doesn’t know what she is.
He was a bachelor (smart man).
In my opinion, the best First Lady would be one that almost no one knows who they are.
Can they not just be the wife of the president, rather than undertaking some great ‘social cause’ that virtually no one seriously gives a damn about?
The only true accomplishment of our current First Lady is making already bad government school meals, even worse... Ironically, she’s apparently obsessed with kids not having an ass as big as her own.
Truth be told, Eleanor is the one who set a precedent for a meddling First lady.
Mayeb they have a fascination since after all, none of them have Presidents or First Ladies, they have the British royals.
MoocHell Obama is not a real “First Lady” in any case. The best that she could hope for is “First INGRATE”. The sooner that her fat arse is moved out of that “Fancy Prison” that she calls OUR White House, the better.
The best first lady is one who, while fleeing for their dear life, sees fit to at least save the WH portrait of George Washington.
Can you imagine the Mooch saving that portrait? The “all for a little flag” woman would probably burn it.
Even though their husbands weren’t the best Presidents, I always admired Barbara and Laura Bush. They brought class to the White House. Unfortunately, that class disappeared with the First Thug and his home girl.
Scholars from where?
Laura Bush, imo, was the perfect First Lady.
She had style. She was independent of her husband’s responsibilities yet supportive. She loved the American people. She was also very friendly, yet mature.
I saw this article and thinking it as post-worthy and put it up.
The Montreal Gazette is one of 667,000 news sources that picked up the AP story from across the World and the US on the Siena College survey, the college located in Loudonville, New York.
Actually, I think Mamie Eisenhower may have been one of the best. As I remember, she behaved with dignity, but never tried to interfere in politics. Which is as it should be.
