The gender of the president is or should be a total non-issue. The most important thing about a president should be his/her integrity & the ability to use his/her political office to help & improve the quality of life for his/her constituents. However, politics as we presently know & observe it is a game. Politicians are self-serving, only being concerned w/using their political office as a way to self-aggrandizement. Politics is another step into further celebrity for the average politician today. Politicians are becoming latter day rock stars &/or celebrities. Yes, politics is a very lucrative business indeed.
