- Jacqueline Kennedy spent $121,000 on her wardrobe in a single year

- Betty Ford liked tochat on CB radios--her handle was First Mama

- Hillary Clinton dreamed of being an astronaut

- And much, much more

With chapters on every woman who's ever made it to the White House, Secret Lives of theFirst Ladies tackles all of the tough questions that other history books are afraid to ask: How many of these women owned slaves?
