Presidential Fun Fact of the Day

Rosalynn Carter.

While campaigning for her husband in New Hampshire in 1976, Rosalynn would introduce herself as "Mrs. Jimmy Carter." This invariably led to questions of "Who?"

"My husband is running for President," she would say.

"Oh! Jimmy Cahtuh."

Rosalynn learned to call herself "Mrs. Jimmy Cahtuh" and no longer had to explain "who" she was.
