KINSTON, N.C. -- There has been much speculation about what title former President Bill Clinton would take if his wife, Hillary Clinton, wins the White House.

First Gentleman may be the odds on favorite. But today at a campaign stop in North Carolina, Clinton said he might like to be called "First Volunteer."

"I don’t care what they call me as long as she wins," he said with a smile as he greeted supporters on a Kinston, North Carolina sidewalk. "I’ll be the First Volunteer. I hope to be the best free labor she’s got."

During his 10 months rallying for his wife, he has also toyed with the idea of being called "First Dude" and even "First Laddie" paying homage to his Irish roots. But Hillary Clinton has said she likes the moniker "First Gentleman."

If the former president is back in the White House as the spouse, he may help redefine the traditions of the role. For instance, Hillary Clinton has said he will not be picking out the White House china pattern.

Former President Clinton is on his fourth bus tour of the election cycle, this time riding up and down the eastern side of North Carolina, urging early voting. He told supporters gathered on the sidewalk today, "She will be president if she wins North Carolina."
