Lady Bird Johnson, 1912-2007


Her husband's legacy may be at best troubled and at worst catastrophic, but Lady Bird Johnson did lots of good with her conservation work. True, Betty Ford and Eleanor Roosevelt will always be my favorite First Ladies, but I have a soft spot for Lady Bird. It's partly because of her nickname and partly because America's landscape is a lot more beautiful because of her.
