    One of my friend told me that the United States never had a women President . Also I would like you to tell if your country had a women president as yet and her name. My country had her 1st women president in 2007 and her name is Pratibha Patil.

      None officially. Some historians say that Elenor Roosevelt ran the executive branch in the last year that Franklin Roosevelt was president, (He died in 1945.)

    What's this "till now"?

    No... we've never, still have no, and will most likely not have a female president for a long time.

    However, this shouldn't really be a big deal - the Supreme Court, Senate and House of Representatives are all equally powerful domains of our government, and we've had females in each of those.

    Also, each state (to the best of my knowledge) has had female leaders.

    All in all, basically it just means that, out of our entire 600~ person federal government, one of those slots has not ever had a female.

      President of the United States is not just one of 600 major positions in the federal government. It's the top spot. That makes it special.

      BTW, Ron nominated you to run for POTUS, or (as he said) Anarchist in Chief. You are making converts.

    Are you talking about Hillary Clinton. I think she is US Secretary of State and not President.

    No. America will soon have one though.  I advocate for Condoleezza Rice as President in 2012.

    She is the best Conservative choice to beat Obama hands down.
