A Woman for President?

What a concept. Many here have discussed the thoughts of Hillary Clinton, Oprah, Judge Judy, and I think Condalisa Rice, and then a Good friend of mine suggested maybe someone like Minnie Mouse. But this got me thinking something. Are we as a World ready for a Woman President to run and control the things going on here in the United States? Do you think they can handle the Task at hand, or do you still think this should be a mans job? I personally would never want a position like this, even though I would try and change some of the issues out there I feel need to be attacked, but honestly when it comes to World issues like Iraq, Freedom, etc. I know I would not be the one to want to make those decisions to only look back later and think "Did I do it as people would like me to do it." or "Darn, maybe I should have listened more and done it this way." No, I may not be Happy with a lot of the things that go on in the US government today and with the President we now have, but I wonder are we ready for a woman in Office, and is there someone really out there suited for the job? What do you think?

Why on earth should it be a man's job? England had a female prime minister ages ago, and New Zealand's current and previous Prime Minister's are both female, those countries haven't blown up yet, so it can't be too bad. Why do you need to be ready for a woman in office? What can a man do that a woman can't?

Excellent thoughts here. I think these are Great backings for this. I think a lot of it, stems to think the way people are trained to think something like this, as in Presidents of Companys should be a mans job. It is time we did have one to prove to everyone what a woman is capable of.

Other countries have had women as leaders of their countries and they didn't fall apart. I think a woman would do just as good a job as a man. That being said, a position like that wouldn't interest me in the slightest. I think whether they do a good job or not depends on the person rather than the gender or color.

Yes, it does not determine gender, or color, that is a fact. How you do with the job at hand is what counts, and I think it would be interesting to see if their is a woman ready for this challenge here in the US.

For many decades,US hasn't had any women presidents ever.Unlike ours,we already have two.And i come to think,they have same power over men doing the job as president.Maybe US could try something new. There maybe out there whose qualified.I think you should have one now.

Well, it is interesting when you look at it. I was asking another good friend of mine this question and she agrees the same way you do.

Some women capable to be a President. But, it's not in a big country like USA. I prefer man to be a President. God has given an order. Man as a leader. But, if there's no capable man, Woman could be the the leader:) Even though, women always have the mood swings. Hopefully it would be swing right to Hillary Clinton:)

I agree that God created man and woman equally. But, you forget that God created in order. Man is the first. Just follow the order, everything will be OK...I said that woman could be the leader too...

Actually, we are a lot closer to having a women president then you might realize. The Speaker of the House is the third in the line of succession. If the talk about impeaching President Bush and Vice President Cheney becomes a reality, then we would indeed of a women president. Besides, I have had my doubts about some of the men who have held the office. This President Bush, in particular. Just remember, the current President Bush was only elected to office once, in 2004. In 2000, he was appointed by a Republican Supreme Court. If it hadn't been for the attacks on September 11, 2001, President Bush would have never been elected in 2004. If the attacks hadn't happened, he would have spent his four years trying to defend his appointment to the office! That is if he would have lasted four years.

Don't forget that Gina Davis did a really good job in her role of President of the United States in the short lived series, "Commander-In-Chief".

Yes, that's right, and Gina was good=looking, too! And not a trace of the ditziness we saw in 'the Accidental Tourist.' The U.S. has also already had a black president, David Palmer in '24.' Of course his brother Wayne has also been pres, but he doesn't seem as successful.

Margaret Thatcher did a wonderful job in England for many, many years. Who ever takes the office needs to realize that it's not a "feel good" position. They have a great responsibility for many things.

I definatelt think we are ready for a female president . . It would be a good change I think. And there are sooo many women out there who keep up with the politics and whatnot . . me, I'm not one of them!! But there are a lot of very educated women in this country and I think it's time they all took a chance. They might surprise us :)

The discussion and the decisions by friends are optimistic that a women becomes the president but if this happens then it would be a miracle that ever happened in this world. Never a women can judge r even predict the growth of United States. R she never can deal with the whole world leaders. Just it might be talked very eagerly to bring out a women to be the president but i will never happen.

We are only two heartbeats away from having a women president. Nancy Pelsi (I forgot her last name, I know I'm close) is third in the line of succession to the Presidency!

I believe there are more female voters than male voters. If the women have atleast a 51% lead over male voters and every female voter voted for a female president, then that candidate would win.

I think women can do a very good job as President and I am actually hoping that a woman will run for president and be elected if she is qualified and feel she can handle this tough position. Whoever does become next president has a big mess to clean up after Bush is done. He really has screwed things up so it will take time and patience for the next president to straighten things out.

I am not sure about that, I have had many managers where I have worked and I have never liked female managers, they seem to be too catty and emotional on a personal level especially with other women, I don't know if that would be the case with such a high position but I feel maybe woman are not meant for power.

And what exactly does that mean? And where does it say anything about God's views of presidential candidacy?

I think it is about time that we have a woman president. This will be the first for the United States but its been done in other countries so why not try it here.

Totally agree!! Why not here? We shall see in just a little over a yr. how much of a chance Hillary will have for winning. Won't we?

All I can say is that we have to remember that the make-up of the woman is different than the make-up of a man. Men have greater ability to handle stress then women. I don't believe our nerves are as strong as men.. It is my opinion though.

Well, I think though that Hillary is strong enough to accept any Challenge that comes her way, that is why I feel she is an excellent choice to run for President.

Intereting thoughts here. It is hard work to be a Mom and help raise a family, and if they are into Current events and such and like to keep on top of things and budget, etc. they could be a Great addition the White House could really use right now, especially when it comes to Budgeting, and knowing what is best for everyone involved.

It is my opinion that a woman can make a successful president. I think women are just as smart as men are, and deserve a chance to be the President of the United States. I think everyone should be treated equally. I think women can make just as good choices as men. Women might make better Presidents than men, but we just don’t know because a woman has never been a President before.

That is True, and I think that is the reason why people might be leary is because they have never had a woman in charge. But I feel it is time for a change, and what better way to start than with someone like Hillary?

I do think that the RIGHT woman could do a great job, probably even a very good job. Woman and men are alike and yet so different. I think it is time for a womento try and see if she can make a difference

Sure, why not... other countries have had very strong female leaders. India had Indira Gandhi, Israel had Golda Meir, UK had Margaret Thatcher, Pakistan had Benazir Bhutto. They all used military force at one time or another, too.
