This might seem like a tough call, but consider this: Your school district doesn't pay your teacher's spouse; you wouldn't get paid for being a pilot's spouse; no one is on a payroll for being an engineer's spouse. So why should the president's wife be paid, unless she also holds an official job in the U.S. government?
I agree with first lady Laura Bush that the role itself should not be a paid post. Can you convince me otherwise?
