Fiscally Conservative, Socially tolerant, Anti-War
Mrs. Jefferson? Martha died 12 years before husband Thomas became presidentand Dolly Madison served as WH hostess. Sometimes his daughter Martha did as well.Throw in Sally Hemmings and the the dozens of toddlers that died in infancy and the family history is a complicated one. Since Buchanan was a confirmed bachelor, perhaps the wisest of his decisions, his niece acted as WH hostess. We presume that sinceneither President had a first lady, we may admire/abhor their non-existent tenures?
It was a joke (probably not funny in that I had to explain it).
It was funny-no explanation required. At least that is the way I took it.
Nancy Reagan might have been the most obnoxious.
