Posted:So it looks darned well possible that Hillary Clinton could be the next President of the United States of America.

I don't want to discuss the implications of that, or her policies, statements, or anything else.

But...

If she is to be "Madam President," we've had a remarkable coup. We call the President's wife the First Lady. What were we going to call the President's husband? Well... we'd get to call him "Mr. President!"

What *DO* you call the husband of the President?

Posted:Yeah, I'd call him Bill.
But if it's the First Lady, then why can't it be the First Man? ...woah that sounds like Adam and Eve...

I remember reading something about the French and how the language has genders, there's no word for a female president in their language (as opposed to the gender neutral term in English)


i would have changed ***** to phallus, and claire to petey Petey

I would imagine he'll be referred to as Bill/Former President Clinton to avoid confusion but I think first...something would be fitting, maybe gent/gentleman rather than man like lady is to woman? Maybe...

Posted:Well traditionally a lady is married to a lord or a gentleman.

but First Lord comes off a bit suspect.

The First Gentleman of the USA is a bit better.

"First Husband" indicates the novelty of the situation as well...
