“Whether my husband is the President Elect or the President, you can keep it simple and just call me Dr. Jill Biden,” the First Lady Elect told reporters who kept asking about her shoes. “Sure, I’ll be the First Lady too, but ‘First Lady Dr. Jill Biden’ is unnecessary. I want the American people to know that I can bake an apple pie and write a dissertation. That seems to be important to people—pie-baking, not the whole Doctor thing.” Later she added, “Or just ‘Doctor,’ that works too. Whatever makes you feel less threatened.”
