Hillary Clinton’s history-making moment of being the first female major party candidate to vote for herself was overshadowed by her husband’s figure-hugging blue suit.

The Democratic Presidential nominee appeared alongside her husband Bill, who stole the show with a two-button suit (one button fastened) and complementing blue tie.

While some were excited to be present for the historical moment a woman was able to vote for herself as a candidate for one of the two major US political parties, most eyes were on Bill, as he slinked up to the booth in Chappaqua, New York, to cast his vote.

Hopeful to be the First Gentleman of the United States (FGOTUS), Bill offset his navy suit with a lighter blue tie, and subtly carried off a ‘Vote HIllary’ badge on his lapel.

He finished the look with a classy grey trouser to accentuate his legs ‘up to here’, and with a pair of black brogues.

Natually many took to social media to speculate about what Bill would be wearing as he makes his appearance on the eve of what he hopes to be the last as a regular citizen, and his ticket into the White House.

One even looked forward, asking whether he would donate his suit to the Smithsonian Museum, as has been tradition by First Ladies who have come before him, should Mrs Clinton be successful in her Presidential bid.
