The spouse of a male (US) president is called First Lady.
But what is the male equivalent called?

I'm pretty sure this is what's used in states that have female governors (states also have First Whatevers), so yeah.

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

First Gentleman sounds right, but I'm not sure what to do with the abbreviation.

It gets interesting with tickets with gays and/or singles. If the Pres is a gay man and the VP is a straight man, the Second Lady would technically be the First Lady. Wink

Thanks, but I think it's actually something Bill Clinton said back in '07 when it looked he was favored to be the first one. I just remembered that because of this thread. Lol.

Yes, in the sense that she performed the social duties of the First Lady. Thomas Jefferson was a Widower, and during his presidency either his daughters or Dolly Madison, wife of James Madison, Jefferson's Secretary of State, would act as White House hostess.

I don't believe "Second Lady" is too commonly used.  Al Gore's future ex-wife complained, humorously, that in introductions it was:

"The President of the United States, the First Lady, the Vice President of the United States, and Tipper Gore."

First Lady/Gentleman is more of a social title, technically informal.  Even a social letter would be address as:

The President and Mrs. Obama
