What Do We Call Bill Clinton If Hillary Wins? She Has Some Ideas

If Hillary Clinton is elected president in 2016, the nation won’t just have its 

first female president. We’ll also have our first male spouse of a president — and the need for a title other than “first lady.” 

Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel asked the Democratic presidential candidate what Bill Clinton would be called in her White House. 

“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,” Clinton said on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Thursday night. 

However, in the case of Bill and Hillary Clinton, as in the case of a few other US Presidental dynasties, the title of POTUS may not be so singular.

If Hillary wins the White House, this will be the first time the President is a spouse of a former President, but there have been a few times Presidents have shared a last name. And when this happens, typically people refer to the former President by a nickname or by their full name:

John Adams (2nd) was Father of John Quincy Adams (6th). The father is generally called John Adams, while the Son is called JQA, or John Quincy Adams.

Get him out of Washington as much as possible, so that he doesn't interfere with her presidency and her people.
Benefit from his advice, privately -- the way GWB apparently got advice from GHWB.
