    Edith Wilson is best known for her role running the White House after her husband, President Woodrow Wilson, fell ill. Rachel Campos-Duffy looks into the life and legacy of this historic first lady in Fox Nation’s "Women of the White House."  Edith Wilson biographer Rebecca Roberts told Campos-Duffy that looking back on the life of Woodrow Wilson, he was already ill in 1918 and 1919.

And she decided what he saw, what could wait, what was ignored completely."  Roberts noted that Edith did not overstep in creating policies, but did owe the American...
