I think it is long overdue! A woman should have already been president. Many other countries have already had women leaders, and we are behind the times as a civilized nation.

Considering all of the support and votes that Hillary Clinton is receiving, I would think so. I would not have a problem in voting for a smart woman as president. However, I wouldn't vote for Hillary because of her proposed policies as universal health care. Once we get stuck with it, we'll get stuck paying for it, at higher and higher costs, like we are doing with medicare. But that's a different post. Sorry for the rant.

i am terrified hillary will become president...i cannot believe people would vote for her after all of the scandels they were involved with...her moral character is not one I would like to see associated with our government. She was snickering the whole time during bush's speech the other night on tv...even if she doesn't agree with his policies, i think a certain level of respect for the president is necessary if you yourself want to become one... I think a woman president would be fine...but I don't think hillary's the one for the job...just my two cents though

I would hope the Country was ready for a woman president by now. If not then it will never be ready.I dont agree with everything she stands for,but that is true about every other canadate running on either party.

Well I don't think so. The guy above said we are supposed to be the first and best? Well We aren't first and the best in everything. lol Its called Japan. Also I dont think this country is ready for a female leader. If you look at past times/ history, Women always have been last in this country. White males were always first. Now that we have a chance to have a Female or a Black Male I dont think there is a choice really. Not being sexist or rascist but History has shown that Females are last. They were last to vote. Last To get full rights. So if history does repeat itself we are in for Obama or John Plain and simple.

Gosh, I should certainly hope so! We're one of a very few developed nations who have not had a female leader and that speaks volumes. Aren't we supposed to be the first and the best? I guess it's only natural that every discussion about a woman President becomes a discussion about Hillary Clinton which in turn leads to a Hillary bash-fest. I say each to his or her own but I'd take Hillary over the current crew any day of the week. I'd go back to the days of her husband's Presidency in a heartbeat if I could as well. But, sorry, I didn't mean to get off topic here...lol. I think we're ready for a female President but I also don't think someone's vote should be based on gender alone, either for or against anymore than it should be based on race or religion. Annie

Honestly no I feel that this country is more ready for an Afican-American for president more than we are for a woman president.

I am trying very hard to focus on the candidates platforms rather than their being either male or female. I really do not see the problem wtih a female president, many countries have had female leaders. If someone doesn't want to vote for Hilary, I wish they would base that on her platform rather than her gender. The way I see it, ANYONE would be better than the airhead that is currently in office!
