The First
by Oro

The camera flashes surround her like a halo; she's classy and feminine, and Abbey Bartlet: the First.

First Woman, First Wife, first doctor to quit such a prestigious committee, a colleague commented at a cocktail party, and then stuttered and swallowed his sarcasm underneath her glance.

From first in her class at medical school she became known as her husband's first, on page five of some idiotic magazine she's never heard of before that gives tips on applying makeup.

She poses for the cameras, her husband's arm around her waist, and she is but an icon: First Lady of America.
