    Be Best

    That is the inspiring slogan of Melania Trump's anti bullying campaign. It is traditional of late that the first lady take on a significant problem in society, the use of a bully pulpit, if you will. The first lady has no real power, just the prestige of the office to champion some social cause.

    What do you think of the First Lady taking on a public role, since she has not been elected?

    It's good that a worthy cause can be promoted by a person of prominence such as the first lady. But in this instance, perhaps she should start with her own husband otherwise her campaign will be undermined. Especially as recent reporting indicates that Trump's words are being used by kids to bully classmates at school .

    It's been a tradition for around 200 years. I tend to ignore presidential spouses (unless they are Hillary-in-your-face types).
