Dear Friend and Reader:
On Sunday, Hillary Clinton ended all the wild speculation and informed us she would be running for president. This raises an important question — is America ready for a male First Lady?
Could Bill Clinton handle the important responsibilities associated with being the president’s spouse? Can a man, even one who was POTUS, gracefully take on the arguably more difficult job of FLOTUS?
I consider this an extremely important role in American government and society. So much of politics is on the human level, and the First Lady is directly involved in holding that steady. Though the role carries no official power, everyone knows that she often is the influence behind the throne.
The primary role of the First Lady is to be the White House hostess. She is usually in charge of the domestic staff — the butlers, chefs and cleaners. She is president of the residential section of the White House. People often put down the importance of the role of women as the primary organizer of the household. Whatever feminist literature may say, this is an important duty and we may well ask if a man is capable of handling it.
