We bring things to the table that are different, like how we may look at something is quite different then how a male may look at it. Though, Hilary wouldn't be my choice, if the right female was running for office I would vote for her.
    I agree. I don't care what a man says or what even a woman says about a woman shouldn't be president or whatever. What the hell do they know? Absolutely nothing? If you don't think that a woman shouldn't be president, what proof do you have? I have said this before in another thread: If England France Pakistan can have woman leaders why can't we? I'm so sick and tired of woman selling themselves short. Would you rather have it like it was in the 50's where women were oppressed and had no freedoms? Well do you? Would rather work over a hot stove and have to ask the "man of the house" for everything? Having them have say what you do with your own body? Well would you?

    I don't know about you but I don't. I think women are far more capable than men at ruling a nation because we are nurturers. Being a nurturer isn't a bad thing really. With women we can actually negotiate with other countries and come to peaceful terms. Unlike with what Bush is doing. Woman aren't likely to ask Congress (let alone start themselves) to start a war. So really being a nurturer isn't a flaw. It's something that you can shape into your greatest strength. Not keep it as a weakness.

    Re: sexism?

    I’m sorry but how does your gender decide your leadership qualities? What makes a leader a good leader is an open mind, dealing with stress in a good manner, and be able to make sound decisions under said stress. I have seen these traits in both men and women. To say that women are not fit for a leadership position which is basically what is being said is insulting and degrading to women everywhere. There have been many women who have taken these sort of positions and have done wonderful jobs. (Just look up Elizabeth I)

    I will admit that there are a lot of women not fit for a job such as president but so are a lot of men. I’m sorry but to say that no woman can lead a country is very close minded to me.

    I can see your point, but...kiinda generalizing all woman. Not all are like that, yes Hilary seems to be one, not only that I don't view her toooo bright. I say if we do have a female President, let's get someone smarter than Hilary.

    Re: sexism?

    I don' have anythin' against a woman pres., I jus' don' want Hilary. She flip-flops too much on important issues and doesn' stick by her guns on anythin'. She talks a good game, but action speaks louder than words and from what I've seen of her actions; she can' be trusted. On the idea of a woman pres though, I'd have ta agree wit my dad on this one. He says that a woman pres would haveta prove herself ta a doubtin' american public, so she; more than likely; would pull out all of the stops ta try and do the best job possible that she could do. So a woman pres wouldn' b so bad, in fact, this country could possibly benefit from a woman pres. Jus' my opinion, though.

    Sanity doesn't exist, it's just an excuse cooked up by crazy people to justify their actions. My myspace page: www.myspace.com/joemage

    Re: sexism?

    I agreee.
    I dont think any women is suited for president. i dont care if you have a mindset like a man and stuff. I still dont think that any women should be president.

    I see alot of this in like a bible aspect i guess you could say. and women were not made to rule. Never.
    And I stand by that. I am a women my self but men i think are better at ruleing a nation than a women is.
    Like you said women would care more aobut starving children and animals.

    you know honestly its kind of sexist but i dont think a woman should be president of the US, or any country for that matter. it may be old fashion but i think she would let all the "woman worries" come into play. girl are more apt to care about the starving children in africa fund, and the save the animals stuff, and i just dont think thats what our country needs to be focusing on.

    anyone agree or disagree?
    lemmi know
    I agree if the was a women as president it is possible that she the power she will have may use the money that the states pay and use it to help with Africa, it would be nice to help but our country's money has to go in gas and such, but if do have a women president the country might be more organized or something that might help with our communities; I'm newish and I saw your post.

    thats more of wha i meant. i wasnt trying to generalize but as in the quote below i believe in the bible and men were put to lead. i am all up for the female equality stuff- to an extent. there will always be exceptions and perhaps a female president could accomplish something, but hillary i dont belive can.

    exactly the biblical piont i was coming from and even though "times have changed" i base my life off the biblical view- and no i dont havea religion- im nondenominational and i dont frequesntly attend church. my moms as close to aetheist as it gets and shes all up gor hillary. so its defiantly not my background lol


    and again this is only opinions of what i and everyone here thinks.
    just to put that out there.

    Re: sexism?

    Well I am more Republican then I am Democrat, but I try to keep my biast thoughts aside and vote for who ever is best souted to be presidant. It doesnt look like the Republican I am rooting for will wine even if he does have some of the highst raitings. But if it came down to Obama or Hillery. I say Obama simply because Hillery and her polocies make her more like a socialist then anything else and that will damage our gov. and our econ. So I say a big NO for Hillery, not because she is a woman, but because of what she stands for.
