Post Reply Female President. Yay or Nah?

Either way most people are going to expect the world from them and then get pissed off because that person didn't live up to there expectations regardless of gender,usually happens in politics, so to recap it doesn't matter since there's very little difference since that person is still human.

I'd sure hope not. Men are a bit too aggressive these days, especially when they win off popularity and take control of the most powerful economy/military in the world. Hopefully a woman can shake things up a little and put an end to all this hostility.

I like the way you think, but I wouldn't generalize every male politician to be aggressive (that would just be sexist).

I'd worry that an incompetent (or even average - fair or not it's likely she'll be held to higher expectations) first female president might be a bigger blow to women's rights than taking longer to achieve said milestone. So I feel it's rather important that whoever holds the position first make a particularly good showing.

a woman president? Let me see, my first election i got to vote, i voted for a woman for Governor. (Martha Collins of Kentucky) Just last year i voted for a woman for Governor of Wisconsin (Mary Burke).
I thought the GOP best chance for a woman in the White House was Elisabeth Dole. Hillary i like.
When one looks at history i could point out where the lady lead the way. Best example i can give is Queen Elizabeth (I or II)(you pick)
I never really consider gender when choosing.

Gender just like race doesn't matter. The only thing that matters is compatible ideology and opinions. If I liked someone I would vote for them whether they were male or female.


I agree.

I've already lived under a female Prime minister before years ago anyway.

P.S. Not limited to US


Does it matter? People shouldn't care as long as they do a good job...

Honestly, it doesn't even matter. As long as they are qualified and show promise to turn this country around to a greater future.

I just don't want a female president or people voting for a female president to avoid getting sexist comments from society and creating a controversy.
In other words, I don't want a female candidate being forced into running just to please the people that there is a female running.

Hope people understand what I mean.


Pretty much this. If they are qualified, have enough experience in politics, can show to be a leader, has similar beliefs and opinions that I can understand or like then I don't really care about gender or friggen race. I just want a president who can do their damned job and not wreck havoc with everything they touch or try to do. I would also appreciate it if my fellow countrymen and women would actually vote on someone based on merit and less on sex and skin color but that is asking for waaaay too much it seems. It would also help if both the Democrats and Republicans would use a lot more common sense, but that's pretty much asking the impossible.

Then there is that whole issue with the media and on and on.... To be perfectly honest, I'm pretty much sick of and hugely disappointed with US politics right now. Everyone from the White House to the Congress are all a bunch of numbskulls. I always ask people that maybe it would be a good shake up to have more than one party in our country but everybody disagrees. I don't understand why, I mean... both the Democrats and Republicans spend more time trying to one up each other that they only care about the average American when it comes down to voting season or they're trying to get backing for or against a particular legislation.

As long as I agree with their policies I really couldn't give a hoot about gender or race.

Hillary is the only woman that's had a good chance of getting there but her policies are outdated and ill suited to today's economy and political field.

Nope unless she was in the military. I believe a president needs to have a military background in order to become president. This will help the president make better decisions when it comes to wars and the such.

Female presidents are nothing new to me, as I've lived in Liberia and Philippines, both countries that had female presidents already. As long as she puts the interests of the people of the state first before her own party and is not a ranging feminist then I'm fine.


Huh the party should be putting the peoples interests first as well, since they have to govern so it would be best if their party had a the majority and was putting the people interests first. This is how I vote who, I figure out who puts the people and my interest first.

Sure it will happen everything will happen within reason. I would happily vote for a female if she and her party put the people interest first.
