King: After his assassination, Coretta Scott King assumed the face of a strong widow, while gracefully fighting to maintain the integrity of her husband's legacy.

Obama: His wife Michelle is influential in her own right. She draws huge crowds, attracts interest in her style, and is single-handedly changing the public image of the African American woman and mother.
