She could have been a doctor or congresswoman herself. I wonder if her husband (if she married, of course) would have been limited in his role if he decided to support her career. We'll probably never really know until we elect a woman president. If married, we would all get to see what the 1st "first gentleman's" role will be. I doubt that we would expect him to be a fashion plate who manages a scripted sound bite once every couple of years, all while being perfectly coifed for family photo ops in election years. Will it matter which designer/s dress him and will we pick him apart for perceived fashion mistakes? Or will he have a more substantial role to play? Time will tell.
