Who is the best first lady of them all? Well, it’s Eleanor Roosevelt, of course, according to a Siena/C-SPAN poll of 242 historians and political scientists that rated her well above her so-called competitors. That’s the same answer that the poll’s respondents have given each of the five times that the poll has been taken over the last 32 years.
