Inscription.  
My grandmother was an excellent role model. She ran a large farm in Iowa. She died at 86, without seeing me become Miss America. My mother was another important role model. She was a wife, a homemaker and was busy in the community and active politically."1

"I really feel that Watergate has been good for us....A government 200 years old needs to be reevaluated at times....Maybe I'm not as radical as some, but I do feel I'm in a position to do good for women."2
