There were other sides to this complex personality. Her awareness of the political pulse of this country was instrumental in the election of her husband as president. Her ego-driven idea of what the leader of a nation should be changed the White House from a "countrified plantation" into a figurehead residence fit for a president. She was an emancipated woman long before her husband began the emancipation of another minority. The final horror of her husband's death and her incarceration as insane are re-lived by a woman, not an historical figure.
