    What are the prospects of a female USA president?

    Mrs. Hillary Clinton was quoted saying that women still suffered from a “glass ceiling” in American politics.

    It's a matter of the voters' willingness to do it. So far the major parties have refused to nominate a woman, so their pros think one would be unelectable. Britain and Germany have already chosen female leaders, though, so it would seem to be a matter of time only before the US does. Those examples are not encouraging to progressives. They hint that only a conservative woman can win a general election. Still, they're women, so perhaps that would satisfy those who are focused on that.

    Hopefully, never, I hope that the US electorate is not as stupid as the UK electorate when they voted for the cow Thatcher to be in charge of the UK government.

      I remember people being interviewed at the time off the election of the cow Thatcher.  There were women who were saying. 'Let's give a woman a chance. and let's vote for her because she's a woman'.  They were voting on gender, not politics.

    Organization. If you haven't noticed when a woman is in charge of an area, she makes the entire place seem better. The cracks in the road are patched up, the dorms at a college are replaced with new ones, there are new buildings, everything looks nicer. Women typically pay attention to detail more than men.

    Women got the right to vote in the USA for less than 100 years, in 1919. It will happen when a strong foundation for all women demands for political equality and inclusion in the U.S. is supported.  As long as women remain divided it will be a up hill battle. Women will again find a common ground as they have in history, and a woman candidate will emerge.
