I support good leaders and have no preference for gender. It all boils down to how their policies match up with my beliefs.
Also one of the south american countries got a female president a year ago or so. It might have been Bolivia, I forget

i think there is nothing wrong with being a woman involved in politics. its not about being a woman but what she is capable of.

Yeah, it is pretty sad what happened to Bhutto, but that was to be expected. Nothing against Muslim states, but a woman just has nothing to say there (not in every Muslim state, but most). Even though she has been twice the Prime Minister of Pakistan. I don't know if I can let the third time count, cuz it was kinda short <.<
The good politicians that have good intentions, seem always to die in a bizarre way or get expelled.....

No it wasn't sad-what happened to Bhutto...from some reports she stole over 1.5 billion dollars while running her corrupt government (wikipedia)

Musharraf, who is just as corrupt as she was, did not make up those charges-She was no saint and Pakistan is no better or worst without her and anyways her exile was self-imposed (take your stolen money and run mentality) and she shouldn't have come back unless she just wanted to steal more money

When considering how poor the people are in that country no tears are lost for that hypocrite-she claims shes for more rights for women but those 2 terms that she was prime minister of Pakistan she did nothing for them-shes better off dead and an example of a horrible female leader





Bhutto was not perfect by any means but please dont try to back up arguments with "facts" from wikipedia


I was merely trying to put a place even the laziest cr person could easily find. The fact that she led a corrupted government isn't really disputed and the evidence behind that is widely available-just goggle it

Mmhm..I find it sad, cuz it just shows the "negative" sides of the Muslim states...they just proved again, that they will never be able to get out of their stucked-up way of thinking and acting...
Anyways, I find it bad when people are wishing someone's death, I mean she only stole money, she didn't kill anyone, nor did she behave like a dictator...and believing everything that is written in the News-paper is just utterly naive...and Wikipedia is not that reliable of a source when it comes to topics about politics(everybody can post there "his" facts)
So I don't see any points in your comments. In my eyes that are just lies...You totally fail when it comes to back your opinion up with some foul (ireliable) "facts", that are not even facts...

And by the way, Pakistan is not poor because of Bhutta, who stole some money, it is a poor country because it is ruled by narrow-minded men. Basta!

And you just sound like a pretty cold person full of hatred. Wishing someone's death..tsk...that's just pathetic!!

Flo~



Its understandable that you won't believe the wiki source but tell what sources you will believe and I can easily lead you to a link-bbc,latimes, an encyclopedia- what will you believe.

Wiki is just a convenient place that document her and her husbands lengthy misdeeds-any other place would probably take numerous articles to list them all

Only stole money-It might not matter in the US but if your stealing from the poor people of pakistan yes that does mean she probably killed some people
That money could have been used in many beneficial ways such as for food, hospitals-the list goes on

Our president is a female...Pres. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo...females should be able to participate in politics because they too could have many good ambitions and plans for the country.


Arroyo is a small woman with a huge ego. Very scary to offend.

Clinton Is leading in the Democratic polls again. If she wins in the primary's She has a sure shot (about 98%. There is no way another conservative republican would win.) of being the next US president. Let's wait and see how she does.

It was her husband that stole the money. And with her son as the chairman I don't think it will happen again. He seems like a pretty well rounded guy.

although i have serious questions on why you would call isabella a great female as she was scum of the earth and was one of people who's rule lead to fascism in spain.

i think women are nothing but a good thing! they bring another way of thinking to the table and when it comes to politics you can never have enough angles on any one subject.

we have female deputy prime minster at the moment and people have very high hopes for her and our current government after that awful disgrace the howard government put us through

Really so your trying to say that poor bhutto-PRIME MINISTER OF PAKISTAN- didn't know about her husband stealing money-only if she was both deaf and blind and an idiot...she knew, and her position as prime minister allowed them to carry out their crime

Although I don't think that there is anything inherently wrong with women leaders, I don't think that our culture (American) has evolved to the point where the general population especially the male component is willing to accept the fact that they are governed and overuled by a woman. I'm not going so far as to say that this applies to everyone, but just to point out that this is one of the flaws of our society right now. And for example, although Pakistan is a "bit" different from America, part of the reason that Bhutto was assasinated was because people didn't want a women leader, albiet for partly religious reasons. But in other area's like India, the president who is a woman, Sonia, is having trouble maintaining public support partly because of this.


Bhutto wasn't killed because she was a woman-she had already been prime minister of pakistan twice before-musharuff probably just wanted her out of the way

There are actually more women than men voting in the US.


Among the citizen population,
74 percent of women and 71 percent
of men were registered to vote
in the 2004 presidential election.
Women were more likely than men
to vote (65 percent compared with
62 percent), as shown in Table B.
Although men historically have
voted at higher rates than women,
women’s rates surpassed those of
men in the 18-and-older population
for the first time in the presidential
election of 1984.

US Census Bureau: "Voting and Registration in the Election of November 2004"
http://www.census.gov/population/www/socdemo/voting.html

Hillary Clinton is very corrupt like her so-called husband. It's interesting to note that Oprah Winfrey, someone seen as a major womens' leader in the US, does not endorse Hillary. If Hillary does actually win the Democratic nomination, the democrats will lose the election. I think that the swing voters would rather have another Republican of some sort rather than another Bill Clinton, especially if the Republican candidate is more intelligent and libertarian than Bush.

If Hillary does get the nomination it'll be great for Republicans though. The democrats lost the 2000 election because so many people were so sick of the corruption of the Democratic party that they voted for other people like Ralph Nader. Bill Clinton is perhaps the major reason why the Democratic party's reputation went downhill.
