Barbara Bush electrified the 1992 Republican National Convention by being the first wife of a candidate to speak on behalf of her husband at the convention since Eleanor Roosevelt - and on prime-time television. Since then, speeches by the candidates' wives have become an expected part of a national campaign. Starting with Barbara Bush's 1992 RNC address, this program highlights many such key speeches, including: Elizabeth Dole's 1996 RNC address; Tipper Gore's 1996 and 2000 DNC addresses; Hillary Clinton's 1996 campaign speech and 2000 DNC address; and Laura Bush's 2000 RNC address.
