Duties of the First Spouse

By tradition, the First Lady is the one who decorates the White House. Hypothetically speaking, if Hillary wins, how would spouse Bill Clinton decorate the White House? Depending on your point of view, there may be a silver lining to the Hillary-as-Prez nightmare! Imagine… Bill Clinton – decorator of the White House.
Cheers,
Jeff

Well, we already know how he accessorizes a blue dress, right? Can the "White House Grotto" be far behind? Charlie Sheen as "first wingman"? If the president's wife is referred to as the "First Lady", then what would the president's husband be called? "First Man"? I can see Bill enjoying that title. He'd probably just have it abbreviated to "The Man". He'll get business cards printed up, too.

With specular hightlights that can only be seen with a black light...

Don't laugh, Charlie Sheen might not be bad. at least instead of a "chicken in every pot" you know there would be a "cigar in every humidor"

Traditionally, First Ladies have acted as patrons/supporters for various charities and causes. I wonder what cause Bill would take up? Perhaps the plight of working mothers?

Yes - gay men. We all know Bill is into women - perhaps the younger, more amply outfitted type, but women nevertheless. Straight man decor runs more to Possum Lodge style - mostly brown with ducks on it.

You know, cooking might not be a bad idea to add to the decorting resume.

You mean dead ducks stuffed and mounted on the wall.
