dc.description.abstract In the Fall Semester of 2006, I took an honors colloquium taught by Larry Markle on the presidents of the United States. Throughout the semester we studied all of the past presidents and compiled a ranked list of these men based on our personal opinion of their greatness. My thesis is a similar study of their wives. The knowledge I have gained through researching presidential spouses has been very complementary to the information I learned previously in Mr. Markle's class and has expanded my understanding of one of the most important political positions in the United States. The opportunity to see what parallels developed between my rankings of the presidents and the women that stood behind them has led me to a deeper understanding of the traits and characteristics that are embodied by those viewed as great leaders.
