Dogwalk: No Pay For First Ladies

There seem to be more and more talk regarding the role of first lady. Whether there should be a job description and whether or not she should receive a salary. The latest was a column in the Spokesman Review by Lauren Stiller Rikleen . Ms. Rikleen is a partner in a law firm and executive director of the Bowdich Institute for Women's Success. I was pretty sure I knew where it was going before I read it! This is one of those times I find myself smack in the middle of the generational divide! I don't think there should be either/Dogwalk Musings. More here.

Question: Should a job description be written for Michelle Obama and other First Ladies who follow her? And should they be paid during their time in the White House?
