How many politicians' husbands do we condemn for not staying home to bake cookies? Why is it an issue that people don't know what she looks like or what she sounds like. Who cares?

Dr. Judith Steinberg, an internist in Shelburne, Vt., cherishes her privacy. Fond of taking solo rides along nearby Burlington's lake-hugging bicycle path, the wife of former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean is -- by her own account -- a private person who has not made a public speech in nearly 20 years and has never given a radio or television interview. And Steinberg says she has no intention of changing that behavior just because her husband is running for president.

I put this question before you: Try to name another woman, past or present, who equals Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in dignity, class, grace, style or elegance. It is the combination that cannot be equaled. She was not the first to bear an unimaginable tragedy, but she was the first to bear it within the arena of a world stage, and we were better as a nation by her bearing. She brought dignity, honor and respect to us when we were floundering in the mires of horror. We will never be the same because she raised us up a few notches.

Singer Joan Jett and comedian Janeane Garofalo joined Howard Dean on Sunday evening for a high-spirited campaign rally, but the big draw of the day was another woman who's less well-known: his wife. Judith Steinberg Dean, an internist who runs her own practice in Shelbourne, Vt., spoke for fewer than five minutes at two rallies during a surprise visit to Iowa.

The Lake Champlain waterfront had all the charm of a junkyard when a young physician named Howard Dean moved here from New York in 1978. But Dean and others wanted a place to go bicycling, so they formed a group to buy up land and clean up the abandoned barges and boxcars littering the lakefront. The effort, built on private donations, grants and volunteer labor, produced a nine-mile-long recreation area with splendid views of New York's Adirondack Mountains.

For a lost soul like young Howard Dean in the early 1970s, this fabled ski town seemed the ideal place to drop out. He had just graduated from Yale with ordinary marks, and like many in his class left school troubled over the war in Vietnam and the uncertainties of how to find his way in life. He had skirted the draft because of a bad back, and had no desire to follow his well-heeled father onto Wall Street. All Howard Brush Dean III wanted to do was ski.

The Beverly Hills fertility doctor who assisted Nadya Suleman in conceiving octuplets was wrong to implant her with a dozen embryos but mostly respected her wishes and "standard" procedure, a fellow fertility specialist testified Wednesday at a state medical board hearing. Dr. Michael Kamrava's medical license could be revoked if it is determined that he was grossly negligent in his treatment of Suleman and two other female patients: a 48-year-old who suffered complications after she became pregnant with quadruplets and a 42-year-old diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer after receiving fertility treatments.

The first Democrat to form an official presidential committee for 2004 has a resume many candidates would envy. The 53-year-old five-term governor is a "common-sense moderate" who boasts on his Web site that "social justice can only be accomplished through strong financial management"--fiscal conservatism. He is a physician who championed universal health care for all under age 18 in his home state. He is married to a physician and has two photogenic kids.

With apologies to Nicole Kidman (I think), let's banish any further mention of "The Stepford Wives." Lately, it's popped up annoyingly on the campaign trail, where cliches are as common as photo ops (and far less imaginative). In a recent profile of Teresa Heinz Kerry, Time magazine resorted to this description of the wife of Democratic front-runner John F. Kerry: "Not even Hillary Clinton strayed so far from the dutiful, adoring Stepford spouse as Teresa." In January, when Dr.

Dennis J. Kucinich, on the phone en route to a campaign event, is annoyed. The Ohio representative and presidential hopeful, twice divorced and currently single, is fresh off a date organized by a website trying to find him a new wife. His romantic track record raises a fairly obvious, if irritating, question: Could Americans have a problem voting for a man who has trouble staying married? "First of all," he replies tersely, "I would take issue with the way you characterize it."
