If Hillary Clinton is elected as the president of the US, what should Bill Clinton be called? I’ve seen both “first husband” and “first gentleman.” Wikipedia seems to think that it should be the latter.
I seem to remember reading that he wanted to be called the "First Laddy." Kind of clever, I thought.

Not to ruin a fun thought here, because I like the first Laddy thing, but aren't former American Presidents always known as 'President' so it will be President Clinton and President Clinton? kinda confusing... Will she use the Rodham(sp?) -Clinton tag to differentiate if she gets in?

The husband of the governor of Michigan is kown as the First Gentleman.And yes, while he will still be known as President Clinton in certain circumstances, when named IN HIS ROLE AS Presidential spouse, he will be known as First Gentleman.yes again--it's a lame designation... but so is First Lady.

And if he became ordained, he could go by Reverend Clinton, and if he were knighted, he could go by Sir William Clinton, and after all that, he could still be referred to as President Clinton. One doesn't take away from the others. As Amazed said, it's purely a matter of context.

Since he got to be President before her shouldn't it be Gentleman First?
