This Is What Bill Clinton Will Actually Be Called If Hillary Becomes President
And people can't stop wondering what exactly his title will be.
Hillary has been asked this question repeatedly during her campaign (which probably gets annoying), and she's brought up an important point:
Now, it's a little bit more complicated with him because people still call former presidents Mr. President. So I have to really work on this.
After all, you can't be calling someone Mr. President every day right next to Madam President.
Hillary mused on the issue with Jimmy Kimmel.
First dude, first mate, first gentleman, I'm just not sure.
But, more recently, they seem to have settled on a title.
I've already told my husband that if I'm so fortunate enough to be president and he will be the first gentleman.
I kind of love how she phrased it here, she did not ask him, she told him what his title will be. Because, as president, she gets to tell people things.
Bill had a sense of humor about it all.
Although, it's probably pretty easy to maintain confidence if you were president of the most powerful nation on the planet for eight years. He explained,
There's been a lot of talk about breaking the glass ceiling, and I want to talk about one barrier that has not been broken. I want you to support Hillary for me, too, because I want to break a ceiling. I am tired of the stranglehold that women have had on the job of presidential spouse.
Chelsea Clinton, however, joked about what he'd told her he'd like to be called on the "Today" show on Thursday.
He likes to hearken back to his Irish roots so I think he would love to be called First Laddie.
Personally, I'm so excited for Bill to be the First Gentleman, Dude, Bro, Guy or Laddie. I'm just picturing him hanging out in the Oval Office while Hillary is in some important meeting with her advisers and he's just in the corner drinking wine and throwing down sick solos on his saxophone. Please make this happen, America.
