Hillary Clinton, the presidential candidate who could very well become the first woman to claim the Oval Office after this year's election, has already outlined her husband's potential gig as the country's first First Gentleman. 

During last night's Democratic debate in South Carolina, Hillary was asked what kind of role former POTUS Bill might take when it comes to advising her on economic affairs. Will he have a "kitchen table role" or a "real policy role?"

After the room's laughter died down, Hillary explained that, joking aside, she will most definitely be taking advantage of Bill's political know-how. 

"When it comes to the economy and what was accomplished under my husband's leadership in the '90s, especially when it came to raising incomes for everybody and lifting people out of poverty more than any time in history, you bet I'm going to ask for his ideas, I'm going to ask for his advice," she said. "And I'm going to use him as a goodwill emissary to go around the country and find the best ideas we've got."

"Because I do believe—as he said—everything that's wrong with America, is solved somewhere in America," she continued. "We just have to do more of it and reach out especially into poor communities and communities of color to give people their own chance to get ahead." 

Sounds like a plan, Hill.
