Depends on who we elect. I don't mind Hilliary Clinton being in the white house, but a woman in charge would be very intresting.

If she's qualified I don't see why not.

Aren't there already females in the government today? What a freakin ridiculous question. Seriously, you've never heard of a woman's prison? Besides that, just because a woman is president, how in the hell would that stop Congress from being corrupt? Again, what a freakin ridiculous question.

Quoting Blackbird1331 (Thread starter):

Not if she's not qualified.
Voting for someone simply because she is a female is beyond the realm of stupidity, and boarders on insanity.

Well, we have a female head of government over here and I like her better than her predecessor, even though my party preference would dictate the opposite. I think it all comes down to the network a HOG relies on, Schröder's seemed to be based on "I drank so much beer with them, they must be my friends!" whereas Merkel trusts the people she's actually done some constructive work with; constructive being open for definition of course.

Of course, a HOG alone does not change the parliament.

Any less scandal or corruption?  rotfl 

Politicians are a class unto themselves. They know no gender boundry. As long as a the person in charge does what they are supposed to do, uphold the laws of the land or company policy (or whatever), they're fine by me.

But politicians will always be corrupt in my book. Guilty until proven innocent. Their reputation preceeds them.

Women are just as capable of having a sex scandal as a man.

Women are just as capable of taking a bribe as a man.

Women and men are mentally wired differently, but greed and sex are two things that go to the very core of human nature.

Seriously, I agree with Captoveur. Is the country ready for a female president. Sure. Many countries have had one. They can be capable and strong even in war time as Golda Mier and Margaret Thatcher showed.

I think it is the media that has made the gender of the president an issue. I have been perfectly willing to vote for a female president since Elizabeth Dole ran in...was it 1996? I'd be willing to support her again, or Condaleeza Rice.

It's not the gender of a presidential candidate its their policies that are important.

You misunderstand me. I agree every qualified woman has the right, I never said different.

Actually women always had the right to run. There was nothing in the Constitution to prevent them even when they didn't have the right to vote. Several Women suffragists ran for president in the 19th century.

But I was saying the same thing as you in the opposite way. Gender is neither a qualification nor a disqualification.

I won't vote for or against a person based on gender, my vote and most others I dare say, is based on policy. I thank the America is not ready for a woman president is a media propagated myth.

The leader of my homeland is a woman. Here's her score card.

1 year in office (elected by her party, not the population)

4 multi million $$$ scandals to date
1 that crippled the construction industry for 6 months and created massive job losses
A spiralling crime rate
Explosion of IT fraud
Political kick backs for endorsers of her leadership
More trips oversea's and stays in 5 star hotels than any other previous leader
Verbal assault on all men (except her husband and political
associates)
+ other little mentionables, but only if you are familiar with the culture.

However, the mother of them all is her ability to hide from the media during scandals, crisis or questionable contractial dealings. Throw in for good measure her monthly non stop whining of her being a woman and should not be held to a higher standard than men, you got an idea.

P.S. She was according to her own words "appointed by God" to lead the country.
I know my god doesn't care for politics, just the politician (cause he loves us all)

So make your decisions, of course, she is just our leader not that of any other country. Just thought I'd share her achievements.  Big grin

I thought Oprah Winfrey was in charge in the US ?!

I don't think it will make the United States, nor any other society more peaceful, neither has it much to do with a countries development. Besides many rich countries, like Norway, Iceland, the UK and Germany, also many developing countries have or had a female leader in the past and current century and they haven't proven to be more peaceful societies.

The Netherlands, where I live, is supposed to be one of the most progressive societies. However the number of women working is very low, compared to neighbour countries. Neither has Holland a tradition of many women in parliament and no woman has ever been a serious candidate to become prime- minister.

In the case of the US, I would like to see Clinton (or Obama) become president. For me this would be partly an emotional choice as I would prefer choosing a female or afro-american. Therefor Oprah wouldn't be a wrong choice anyway.

Rationally I hope to choose the best candidate naturally.....
