1395 Words6 Pages
The First Lady is the backbone of the President she shows love and compassion for the less fortunate, she makes the President look more appealing . People like the President but people Love the First Lady no matter who she is. Two very good examples of this are Jackie Onassis and Michelle Obama. While they come from very different life styles they have definitely left their mark. In comparing Jackie Onasis to Michelle Obama one would realize that two women from totally different backgrounds can make an amazing impact.
Coming from a very high society life it would be suspected Jackie Onassis had a very charmed perfect life growing up. While her life was very charmed it was far from perfect. Jackie's parents were divorced her father was a drunk and her mother was very harsh and critical. In fact Jackie’s mother resented her because she looked too much like her father(Jaquelin K). As a result of Jackie's parents divorce and her mother’s attitude towards her, Jackie ended up being a very shy child. her favorite outlet when life would get tough was riding horses. Jackie mostly stayed with her mother and stepfather but overall she adored her father Jack Bouvier, Jackie is what is considered to be a daddys girl. Even though Jackie did come from a very rich family it didn’t stop her from going to college and making a career for herself; in fact she was a writer for a news paper. Another interesting fact about her was she was engaged to another man when she met Jack Kennedy, his name was G.W. Husted Jr. he was a socially correct man who worked on wall street(). Many things attracted Jackie to JFK his charm his good looks his success ,but most of all he reminded her of her father.
John Kennedys family was not that welcoming to Jackie...
