    When will France and/or the United States have a female President?

    Both of these countries are self-proclaimed bastions of freedom and liberty, yet they stand by as other notable countries elect female leaders.  Isn't this a sort of hypocrisy?

    Who cares?  It will happen when the money changers need a woman in office.

    Can't say about France, but I think we are a few years from a woman president.  There is one group left from about age 70 on up that are still voting and many of them still see women and other races as second class citizens.

    It is changing very quickly though and it will happen within the next 10 years I think.  (I hope so anyway, it is time)

    I do not want to accept any leadership position, just BECAUSE I am a woman.   I want my dedication, my dependabilty, my record, my intestional fortitude, my guard to speak for me.

    I DO NOT WANT the position, just because it came down to "Marcie" vs "Darwin".

    After all of my effort, and sacrifice........the LAST thing that I want is to be awarded a position because I am a woman..................It voids everything that I , my mother, and Grandmothers have worked for................equality.

    Here, you are, asking us to give credibility to this very thing that women have fought against.

    If a man opens a door, offers a raincoat.......it is seen as a humane and gentile gesture, and I welcome and appreciate it................but to " vote" for me, because I am a woman in oppostion to an equally qualified man......it is quite condensenting.............I resent it.

    Let each of us, have a female president, when the BEST qualified is a woman.
