This is a very good question. It is my opinion that because most Americans are Christians who believe in patriarchal social values, they do not trust that a woman could do the job properly. Unfortunately I would have to agree with them - As long as we are a greedy war mongering nation, it is better to have a man to be the president. Our president is also the head of our armies which in my opinion is not a very natural position for a women to be in. When America changes and has become more interested in preserving the diversity and values of all the people on this planet and not just their own, it might be that a woman would be more appropriate. Women are more likely to work together cooperatively for the good of all where as men tend to only value their own needs.

i am not agree with your statement on second para. US national security advisor is woman, which is very resposible post in US and very challenging too. If woman can successful in this high profile post, then why not as president ?
