Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Contents - BY MEGMASON MEG MA­SON

1. Over eight years, Michelle Obama has evolved from a pres­i­den­tial plus-one to an ac­tivist and or­a­tor, with a con­stantly on-fleek wardrobe.

2. Hil­lary Clin­ton has held the ti­tle of least-liked pres­i­den­tial spouse since ’96, but may be about to hand that man­tle to Me­la­nia Trump, who’s polling worse than The Donald him­self.

3. Bar­bara Bush is the most beloved FLO­TUS in re­cent his­tory, even though she did bring Ge­orge W into the world.

4. Dubya’s se­cretly lib­eral wife, Laura, opted to speak up on same­sex marriage af­ter leav­ing the White House in ’09.

5. Nancy Rea­gan was fond of con­sult­ing as­trol­o­gists af­ter the as­sas­si­na­tion at­tempt on her hus­band.

6.This week, the real ques­tion looms: will it be Mrs Donald Trump or Mr Hil­lary Clin­ton for FLO­TUS?
