    How to Address a Lady President's husband?

    If the President is a man then we address the President's wife as the First Lady. How about if the President is a Lady then how do we address her husband officially?

    Of course, if Hillary had won, there'd be no problem - as her husband is still called President Clinton (living ex-presidents keep the title).
