FILE - In this Oct. 27, 1993 file photo, then First lady Hillary Rodham Clinton applauds after President Clinton spoke in Statuary Hall on Capitol Hill, Washington. A court battle over the role of Hillary Rodham Clinton in a health care task force affirmed the status of First Lady as official in the United States, when a federal appeals panel ruled in 1993 that the president’s spouse is “a de facto officer or employee” of the government. France’s unmarried president - and the reported love triangle involving the companion he installed into the Elysee palace and a French actress supposedly down the street - have led the country into a delicate debate over whether it needs a first lady at all. Many countries lack official status for the spouse or companion of a leader, turning up some complicated situations, even when the public is willing to turn a blind eye. (AP  Photo/Dennis Cook, File)
