Default What are the chances of a female president?

I was thinking about this the other day. Yeah, I'm sure it would be cool for women to have a female in office. And I'm sure it would be a "liberating" experience, but past being a novel idea, do you think it could actually work?

I mean, the entire globe is basically made of male leaders. Most (well, maybe not most, but a lot) of the countries and cultures look at women as a second class citizens. Not worth more than a maid and a cook.

Would they be able to respect us? Could they take America seriously? What other problems do you think would arise because of this?

Honestly, I think we'll see an African-American in office before a woman.

It won't happen in the US in our lifetime.
I believe a black President will be elected first before a woman.

I think countries would be afraid to wage war against us. I mean think about it, how would a culture where women are 2nd class citizens feel after losing a war to a GIRL??? I mean, I would personally shut the hell up and concede to whatever the U.S. said.

Tell you the truth, it could happen but I think it would be a republican (conservative) woman who makes it into office.

I just hope to god that Hilary doesn't make it.

Default Re: What are the chances of a female president? (Notorious N.A.G)

Here's a good story...
My mom is a first grade teacher at the biggest school district in our county, and one of the biggest in the state. For years and years, the school board always hired Superintendents who were from the "good ol' boy" network (this is how politics works in general, at least in the old south) and things were always status quo. Coaches taught classes and slipped their star players through with A's, the rich kids showed up drunk at dances, got in fights with the not rich kids and got off Scot free while the other kids got expelled, band and drama got cuts while the football team got to stay at the Embassy Suites for away games. The usual.
Then along comes this woman. She was tough, didn't take any crap, and she knew her stuff. Somehow she got hired as the new Supe. And suddenly, the bad teachers were getting run out of town, money was "discovered", academic standards went up, etc...
Was this because she was a woman? Not exactly. But being a woman in a man's world creates a certain attitude and mindset. One that gets things done. I think a woman for president would be great for the country. As long as it's not HIllary...
Libby Dole maybe? Click the image to open in full size.

IMO, there will be a female president before a black male president.

I remember there were rumors that Collen Powell was going to run for Pres. I would have voted for him. I think a female Pres would have more problems than a male. Not because of incompetence, but because of double standards. Other countries who do not respect their women as the US does may not respect our leader or this nation for that reason. It's going to be a while in my opinion before we see a female in that position.

I also like Colon Powell, but he is far too liberal to ever get the Republican nomination for president. A shame too, as I think he would do a fine job.

Did you watch the news last night. GWB had very kind words and respected her tough stand against terrorism for the lady President of the Philippines, Arroyo.

I don't think I would vote for her just because we are both female. I am not into the liberal female "I can do anything men can do" crap. I can't do everything a man can do. I deal with it.

What country do you live in? White people will be a minority in not too many years. Eventually, the other minorities will start voting in number, and you will see a non-white president.
