Personally, I see women in the U.S. as less accepted power holders by our culture than black men, particularly in the Christian church. This influences the secular moral values. So, no, even though the voters elected a black man, I still do not expect a Lady President for the U.S. in the near future.
Yes, I do rather expect one.
Because it seems America is already trying to "make history" simply for the sake of making history, not for the good of the Nation. That's evident by who got elected President this last time. I hope a strong, decent man will replace Obama (or else get him kicked out even before the next Election).
I think it is possible to elect a female to the office although I do not current see a viable candidate who will run away with the election. As much as she would like to, I don't see Hilary Clinton challenging Obama for the nomination in 2012. I think if she is going to do that, she must resign right now and get on the campaign trail. The question arises as to whether she will seek the 2016 nomination. I think that is a possibility although being up in years and a female may be more than she can pull off. While Palin entertains the idea, I am not sure she has the base within the Republican Party to support her for the nomination. I think she would have to seek the office as an independent and that automatically makes her a long-shot at best. Condi Rice is certainly intelligent enough and very qualified...probably moreso that Clinton and Palin put together but she is not a political hack thus I do not see her hat in the ring. I firmly believe the best platform for a female to reach the office is to serve as a VP first and use that as the springboard. Still, even with that foundation, it administration she serves in will have to be looked upon as one which was strong and did well during their time in office. WB

her? Why? Why not? Ms. Clinton seem to have the best qualifications for president. She also has political experience and is a quite savvy person?

Lately, it seems that our elected body has demonstrated VERY limited competence when it comes to addressing the issues of the U.S. or applying the laws of the U.S. Constitution, and since we all know there is no FORMAL training for these positions, I think it would be an excellent idea if We The...

Even though Trump was elected by the people, there is so many that absolutely hate him, why?Even though not everyone is for President Trump he is still in the highest position in the country. And it just makes more sense to stand with him to get more done. Don't you agree? And he has done more in...

Brett K. has been "practically a choir boy" the majority of his life. Adolescence is a period of time when one learns about one's body, (being suddenly driven by hormones,) the effects alcohol, (which can be fun, but are often tragic,) and the opposite sex ... (how far can I go? Do...
