I watched debates presidential both Democratic and Republican, but I couldn't even imagine who's gonna be a president.
We, in Russia, are not going to have any debates presidential, because all of those capable of pursuing debates some are in prison, some are under investigation, some (the most smart) are abroad and one person is even shot dead near the Kremlin, therefore it's absolutely clear who'll be the next president in 2018. Kremlin supporters seem to have chosen the most right form of debates... ( I'm just kidding) But when I listen to what Marco Rubio is saying, I ask myself "Is that guy better than Mr. everlasting Russian president?"


And by the way one question is badly bothering me:
When Bill Clinton became a president, Hillary Clinton automatically got a status of The First Lady. Now, I wonder, if Hillary Clinton wins what status Bill Clinton is going to assume? The First lad? The First Gentleman?

Who can answer this?

Could be First Gentleman. Since the "opposite" of a Lady is a Gentleman.



Oh, look at that. I just googled it now. I was right on the money. This is what it says.

"In the United States, the title of First Gentleman may be accorded to a male person who is married to the head of state of a State government, analogous to the unofficial use of First Lady for the wife or hostess of a head of state, including the wife of the President of the United States." - wikipedia

Is this supposed to be here though? Experimental writing? I feel like this thread should just be in the common room.

I think it is gonna be only 'Sir'.

Anyways it doesn't matter whatever they are called. The only thing that the public is gonna look for is whether will they be contributing something to the society. And whatever they do should be benefiting the society.

They shouldn't be doing anything that creates a bad image in the minds of people about that particular society.

Blimey, the stuff immigrated in the Common Room, while I was sleeping. Thanks, Lalodragon, indeed!
