I don't like the things president bush is doing so I am glad to see him going out of the picture pretty soon. I don't really know much about news or politics or anything. I don't very rarely ever watch tv or read newspapers etc so I am very behind on things. I don't usually vote because I don't have enough information on each candidate to really feel moved by one over another. Just because I am registered to vote doesn't mean I'm going to vote and not take it seriously. Anyone can go in and check off names but if I am going to vote I want to really know what each candidate stands for and make the best decision on who I think will best run this country. Anyway I just saw on tv that Hillary Clinton is running for president and I think its pretty cool because there has never been a female president and there might never be one but by golly at least it shows there are women out there who want to try. It has to be hard to get out there and do that knowing that so many people firmly believe that only men can be president and all the other thoughts about women being less then men.

Ok well first off, I must agree with you on President Bush's performance to some degree. However, I also believe that the alternatives (Al Gore and John Kerry), are much much worse; and, quite frankly, President Bush is doing fairly well considering all the problems he has had to deal with (such as terrorist attacks). Now, as far as Hillary Clinton goes, I am absolutely not against a female president in any way. In fact, I believe that someone like Condoleeza Rice would make an excellent president; but I do not think that Hillary would be a good president. Again, I am not being at all sexist, I just don't like Hillary as a person...

Exactly. I don't know these candidates and what they stand for or what they are like so I cant vote until I have a strong opinion on them. I just think its cool a female is running even if in the end I choose not to vote for her for some other reason.

As long as she ends the war in Iraq I'm good.
