    I would think so!  I'm not thinking Palin, but definitely NOT Hillary!

    I'd say there is no "time" Whenever the right candidate comes around is the time. Nobody should be president because they are male, female or belong to a particular race.

    Choosing a president on such superficial qualities is very wrong and bad for the country.

    People in America have to vote based on a candidates performance in the past, not on their race or sex. Americans also have to remember that a candidates promises are only as good as Congress will allow.  The President gets the blame and the credit but Congress runs the country.  Most American people can tell you who is President but can't tell you who represents them in Congress or what their voting record is.

    It will come when we least expect it, just like how it happened with Obama. Whenever it happens, we will just see a woman who usually is out of the spotlight start running for president.

    I do think its time but we won't have a clue until we see it happening!

    well i agree there is no special time and sex should not overshadow policy. and i do agree that congress does most of the policy making for the pres. but in the case of sarah palin, her state legislature tried to run her. they treid to let the oil companies sit on their leases and not drill for gas or oil. she forced them into a corner and told them all, either big oil drills or their leases will be terminated. when they did not move she put out the pipeline for natural gas out for bid. that got the big guys drilling and the pipeline built. now we all hear of the new cleaner energy reserves that natural gas is the future. we just don't hear it was her who made it happen. i think 2012 is the time and actually 2008 should have been. maybe my dream will come true and she will run with condelisa rice by her side. we've had the reigns for over 200 years guys, let the ladies clean up our mess and fix this nation.

    Let me start by saying this. I am a registered republican.

    It is time for America to have leadership and representation. I don't particularly care if that person happens to be black, white, female, or martian, so long as they can lead the country to the great heights we have been accustomed to in the past.

    It's not about a woman. It's not about color. It's not about a time for history to be made.

    It IS time to set aside ideology, and partisanship, and look for leadership—I know I said that already. There's a reason. It bears repeating.

    Commissioner, I only say we already have given thought that it was time for a black president. It was a wrong reason to elect someone then. It will be a wrong reason to elect a woman tomorrow—unless they are absolutely right for the job.

    That's like asking if its a good time to die. Perhaps a better question would be: is it time to elect a president who is qualified, who is committed to the Bill of Rights, who endears individual freedom and capitalism, who would proclaim themselves to be an American, not in birth, but in ethic and philosophy. To be an American is not to claim a geographical birth place; it is to possess a mindset. The sexism and bias of such a question, as yours serves only to divide,
