First Lady Michelle Obama at 2012 'Let's Move!' Day.

It’s both an enviable position and one of the most challenging in the nation. You’re arguably the closest adviser to the president of the United States, but you live in a fishbowl where your every haircut and utterance are judged by the country and the world.

Guests

  • Susan Swain Editor, "First Ladies: Presidential Historians on the Lives of 45 Iconic American Women" (Public Affairs, 2015); Host of C-SPAN's "First Ladies: Influence and Image" series; Co-CEO of C-SPAN
