I may watch.  Don't think I'll learn anything new though. 

 

Now I would really enjoy if CNN did a docu series starting from the very first "First Lady" all the way to the "current" one.

@Mz iMac @haddon9   Did either of you see the CSPAN series (I believe 2013-2014)?  It was a year long series, about 1 1/2 or 2 hours each week featuring one or more first ladies each week.  

 

If anyone is interested, I believe you can still click to watch the videos here:

My thoughts exactly!  But on a non news channel.

@Pandalady   Exactly what I wanted!!!!!  How did I miss this series?  I'm a faithful C-Span watcher.  Downloading the whole series now.

 

Good thing I recently purchased 100 DVD-r discs Smiley LOL

It was excellent.  And, it was interesting to learn about the lesser-known First Ladies.  The episode in which Ida McKinley was profiled was very good .  She was an invalid and he was very good to her - Poor lady had to lose him  in a tragic way.

 

I received the book  from the series for Christmas a few years ago.
