We need a strong feminist image of betrayed wives standing by their man as he screws his way through his long line of interns. It is a noble role, indeed, fit for only the most stoic and upstanding females.

If she stays out of policy matters then she ought to be off limits. If she insinuates herself in to the realm of public policy, makes statements supporting the President's agenda or offers opinions of her own then she's fair game for criticism vis a vis her position on the issues upon which she becomes involved.

When did this happen, "the long line of interns" that you mention?

Those who throw stones need to be a little careful:

What would the media have done if Hillary Clinton had won?

Did you see those pants that Bill Clinton was wearing? The color is all wrong for him and they make his hips look too big. What was he thinking? I bet THAT designer never dresses the First Man ever again...and his hair...don't get me started on that. It's not still the 90s, Bill!

or

First Man Bill Clinton donated the outfit he wore to the Inaugural Ball, to the Smithsonian, today. You may recall he was roundly critized that day for his choice of a pastel pink shirt to go with a heather grey pinstriped suit. Meanwhile, the President announced she was finally going to take the First Man on a big date to NYC. "He's really excited," she said as she stepped on Air Force One to meet world leaders in France to discuss nuclear disarmament. "I told him to pick out a nice restaurant." It is rumored that the First Man actually spent the day figuring out how he was going to spin this as Presidential domestic experience when he looks for a political job after Hillary Clinton's term is up.

I feel one role for the First lady is to help her husband for his POLITICAL SRUVIVAL. The causes that a first lady promotes, for The President's Agenda. I think one position is how the First lady promotes herself, and how that relates to the Presiden's agenda whetehr it be a policy role or not. I think that most First Ladies do an awful lot of listening, to identify and focus the Needs of importance to Americans, If Policy is brought up, her role will be to bring this information back to the President. And so much more on the agenda for First Ladies, besides always looking there best. Not a easy job.

It would be nice if the First Lady took up some noteworthy causes. The Iron Chef doesn't fall into that realm.
