Laura and Martha
I consider Condoleeza Rice the most romantic woman on the political scene since Jackie Kennedy. Jackie had style, of course, but Eleanor Roosevelt had substance. Eleanor was a crummy mother and a worse lover. But when Franklin fell to polio, she became his eyes and ears, and then he became the brains of the United States. As for George and Laura--apparently what they really had in common was alcohol. Did she kill someone while driving intoxicated? That's when she gave up the bottle. George and Laura were thoughtless Texas golden youth, and her intoxication was swept under the rug. Too bad George has no brains.
