    Who will be Americas first female president?

    Who would you like to see as the first female president for the United States of America? If she was married would you call her husband "The First Gent"?

    I know I don't often watch or listen to the news, but, this has caught me out.  Are you suggesting that all of the Americas have united and are having one president, or do you mean all the countries that make up North America have united under one president?  Mexico might, and perhaps some of the island nations, but I can't imagine Canada joining in.

    I don't know who will be the first female Presient of America, but it better be sooner rather than later .... wouldn't it be embarrassing if Russia had a female Leader before the US ?

    Also, if there was a female married President of America, I imagine that her husband would be called lots of things but it would not be 'The First Man' as that has already been taken :-)

    Politics hinges too much on popularity contests and too little sometimes on the true intelligence and ability of the person.  There are certainly many capable people including many women out there who could do an effective job as President but they are not willing to submit themselves to that political meat grinder to acquire the job.  On that basis, I don't think we will ever see the best person for the job function in it.  For my money, Condi Rice would be a superb choice.  She is wise, intelligent and keeps her mouth shut unless she has something of value to add.  At the same time, I don't see her crawling into that snakepit of politics just on the basis of some egotiscal achievement of winning the Presidency.  Thus, we will have to accept those who are willing to crawl that obstacle course.  Hilary Clinton is facing a choice to either challenge Obama in 2012 or face losing the opportunity.  She may not be in the public eye or hold the favor by 2016.  Sarah Palin is wearing the yoke of her previous election run along with being way over exposed in the media. She has achieved household name status but I don't know that it has increased her stock as a viable presidential candidate.  There are a couple of others now serving in governor positions and senate position who may yet gather the necessary momentum to make the run.  The ugly truth of the matter is that you either have to have money or someone with a lot of money behind you to survive in the race.  On that basis, George Soros may well pick the next female president...a chilling thought.

    I absolutely love Sarah, but I believe she has done herself more harm than good with being in the lime light way to much in a non "Presidential" forum. As of now, I do not see any females on the horizon that has the " political " machine behind them to be able to pull of a nomination. Hillary will probably stand down or retire after her stint as S.O.S...Trying to think, but I just do not see any ladies that are viable contenders at present. I agree that Condi would not want to jump into the den of rattlesnakes and can't say I blame her. Just my thoughts.

    I would not count Hillary out yet.
    I don't know what the spouse would be called. The first man or gentleman sounds strange, but since it's a new concept I guess it would sound odd until we got used to hearing it.

      I agree. Hillary's stint as SOS is giving her the credibility and the foreign experience necessary to overqualify for being President. It should be a shoe-in, once she decides to do it.

    Haha, I'm not sure what we would call a lady President's husband, but "The First Gent" is a good idea.

    I'm not sure who I would like to see at the first female president. Actually, I really believe that whoever it ends up being, we (the public) haven't really been introduced to her yet. Either she hasn't entered politics yet, or she has but hasn't really been hounded by the media yet. I can't wait to have a woman in office though. smile
