Is America ready to vote in a woman for president or is there too much chauvinism?

I think so, I know I am and many of my friends. Now seeing this acutally happen would take only having women canditates running. This country is still full of backwards thinking people, so it's hard to say for sure.

I think the American population is ready for a female president, but one would have to step forward that is qualified and ready to lead. At this moment, no one fitting this description has come forward. Yes, I am including Hillary in this.

I agree with no qualified woman has come forward yet.

For the right woman, America is ready. But all the women with the back bone will not throw heir hats in the ring due to the NASTY politics we have evolved into... It is sad that much better qualified people are out there who could do so much for us, but they have neither the stomach or the right backing to get into office. If the founding fathers could see what we evolved into politically I bet they'd walk away. Ed

I don't think the country is ready for a woman president, but not because of chauvinism. Chauvinism is intentional. I think a lot of people think that a woman is not best suited for that type of role, but that does not mean that they are chauvinistic. I fear that a woman (and I assume we're talking about Hillary) could very easily - if not will - get elected JUST BECAUSE she is a woman and there are lots of people that want to see that happen moreso than just looking at qualifications. Me, personally, I don't think the country is ready.

I agree that an election should not be for the best **woman** for the job...it should be for the first LEADER...man or woman. May I ask..why don't you feel the country is ready?

I think, if she were legitimately qualified, she would get elected. However, if her entire campaign is based on the fact she's a woman, she won't.

I think the majority of Americans will vote for the person they feel is best qualified for the job. We have quite a few females in Congress and serving in city and state offices these days so I don't think that there are many people out there who wouldn't vote for a qualified presidential candidate just because they are a woman.

Well methinks US is literally gearing up 4 the coming elections and is now in the mood to welcome the new century by electing themselves a woman president. No doubt she's a very strong candidate and deserves to be sent to the higHest post.

I think America is definately ready for a woman President mainly because America is ready for a major change in how the country is run. If a woman doesn't win the Presidency, I don't think it has anything to do with chauvinism, I think it's because the majority felt there was a better choice. Personally, I think Hillary Clinton would be a great President. :-)
