    Sen. Lindsey Graham, a presidential hopeful, is a bachelor. Would he need a first lady? It's a question complicated by shifting views of what a first lady should be.

    To some, the role is more than just ceremonial. To others, choosing china sets and guest lists is a relic of a bygone age.

    Only two presidents were unmarried when taking the oath of office: James Buchanan (D) and Grover Cleveland (D). Of the two, only Buchanan remained single through his presidency. But even he had a woman in his life willing to step in and play the role of White House hostess. Buchanan’s niece, Harriet Lane, became a well-known Washington socialite who, as the White House website highlights, “filled the White House with gaiety and flowers, and guided its social life with enthusiasm and discretion, winning national popularity.”....snip~

    Lindsey Graham interview raises question: Do we need a first lady?
    I believe it's in the Constitution that if the President is a bachelor, a First Lady will be assigned to him by a 2/3 majority of congress.

    I don't know, I'm surprised you don't see it anywhere honestly. I guess it's cause he's not a front runner.

    Oh, I thought spinster meant like an old crazy scientist.

And don't forget, John McCain is dying to get into the White House, so it's a good fit.
    Heya CJ. Maybe they will come up with a new term like the FSO. First Significant Other.

    Isn't Nancy Pelosi first in line for that honor?
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    One can assume is that what you mean?.....If he is, he isn't open about it. If he was hiding it.....the MS media would bring all that out, don't you think?

    He did come out and say Jenner would be welcome in his party.

    I would go with an EO, and choose a Hollywood actress.
