Poll: Which First Lady seems to have been the most depressed?

The poll has closed for the question, "Which First Lady seems to have been the most depressed?" Thanks to all who participated by voting.

Mary Todd Lincoln won easily with 67%. Jane Pierce was a distant second with 18%. Lucy Hayes had 8% and Sarah Polk had 5%. I will confess that Jane Pierce got my vote but there is a strong case for Mrs. Lincoln as well.

Thanks to Jennie W. for the question.

I looked at your link tonight to an older blog. my roommate asked me who was on us currency that was not a pres. I said ben franklin, he didn't think I was right. we both found out about Martha Washington. Thank you. I have a 13 year old girl with 6 college credits already, learning chinese, and for once in a very long time I might teach her something new. Right along with "In God We Trust" being printed for the first time. 1886. I didn't know where else to put this so you could read it. but many heart felt thank yous. pixie.
