Elizabeth Hanford Dole : speaking from the heart by Molly Meijer Wertheimer( )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After a career in government service spanning six presidents, from Lyndon B. Johnson to George H.W. Bush, Elizabeth Hanford Dole became widely recognized as a leading Republican politician in her own right after her 1996 speech at the GOP convention. In 1999 she spent six months campaigning for president before dropping out of the race due to a lack of adequate funds, and in 2002 she was elected U.S. senator from North Carolina. In this biography of Dole, the authors show how she has been able to advance the causes she cares about, as well as her political career, through her consummate skills as a public speaker."--Jacket

Part 1. Several high-powered women, whose husbands are politicians, have recently brought questions about their political duties into the foreground. Perhaps most prominently, Silda Wall Spitzer's decision to stand next to her husband as he announced his resignation from office touched off a firestorm of debate. First lady of Massachusetts Denise Patrick also spoke out about the difficulties of adjusting to her role over the last year. And, of course, there is constant scrutiny of Hillary Clinton and debate over the legitimacy of her foreign policy role as first lady. So, with all of these current issues swirling about, we thought it was high time to talk about them on 51%. We begin with Penn State professor Molly Meijer Wertheimer, who has devoted much of her career to first ladies. She brought us up to date on changes in expectations of the first lady over history
