    Should women be presidents?

    We've had men presidents for years! Is the world even ready for a female president?

    I think if she is the right person for the job, and qualified, then we're ready.  I think we always could have had one.  Anyone who bases their vote on gender should not even be voting.  What kind of ignoramus does that?

    Although in full disclosure I'm not a Clinton supporter, why not a female President?  We had Margaret Thatcher on the world stage for 12 years. She fundamentally changed the U.K.  Great ally to the U.S.  I wish we had a Republican female candidate (besides Palin).  Maybe soon.

      Not to mention Elizabeth I of England, who's reigning period is known as England's Golden Age.

    Not ONLY is Hillary Clinton one of the most QUALIFIED Women in HISTORY to assume the Presidency of the United States, she's one of the most qualified PERSONS period ~ Far more qualified than any CONservative Republican in the RACE, that's one reason WHY we'll see a NEW Face at the GOP Convention as the Nominee or Perhaps Kasich / Cruz ~ Delusional Trump was DISQUALIFIED before he even entered the competition ~

      List her qualifications please....try not to deflect and talk about the bad things you feel other candidates possess.  Just the qualifications that make her the best ever in your opinion.  Should be a cakewalk for you....

      She may be qualified, but is also incredibly corrupt, which is why we shouldn't elect her. From using Sec of State job to send bribes to family foundation to deliberately violating government secrecy rules for convenience, anyone is better than her

      For starters, Hillary was Senator of NY, U.S. Sec. of STATE, 1st Lady of the U. S., Accomplished Attorney & Organizer, Business Woman etc ~ P.S. ~ ONLY in "Republican PRETEND-Land" is Hillary Corrupt, in the REAL World she's Amazingly QUALIFIED ~

      So you got nothing Prime - FLOTUS is Bill, SOS she has blood on her hands, as senator she basically filled a chair with Zero significant legislation. Wanna try again?  If you dare....I'll start - Trump created 25k jobs and maintains a payroll

      Yup Hillary has Nothing ~ lol ~ ONLY within the Confines of "Republican PRETEND-Land" is that true ~ Hillary is an AMAZING, Strong Individual with decades of experience ~ Now, go look at the REAL Corrupt & Demented individual named CON-Man Trump

      AP What is your definition of qualified?
      It is a ? that requires a factual answer, not a quip.
      Seriously, what qualifications. And for equality sake you also have to compare it with men as well.

    I assume you're speaking about the United States, where, so far, all the Presidents have been men. That is not the case in other countries, where women have held top leadership positions (president/prime minsiter/etc.) for years. For example:

    Angela Merkel has been prime minister of Germany since 2005.

    Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner has been president of Argentina since 2007.

    Helle Thorning-Schmidt has been prime minister of Denmark since 2011.

    Park Geun-hye has been president of South Korea since 2013.

    Erna Solberg has been prime minister of Norway since 2013.

    Should I keep going? Because these are just a few of the women currently holding the top position in their country. I haven't even started on those who have left office.

    The whole world is ready for female leaders, and has been for years. The US is just a little late catching up on actually electing one.

      It would also be helpful if there were more qualified women running for president too.

      Lack of qualification for the job hasn't stopped many men from running, if the current crop of clowns is any example.

      YES! Point well taken, Lisa. Indeed!   I'm just not FOR the only woman running at this time.  I'm beginning to think I may not even exercise my right to vote.

    Of course - women have presided over many countries worldwide.  I don't believe we simply elect a woman just because she's female though.

    Why shouldn't the portion of Americans who have always made up the majority finally be represented at the executive level?

    There have been female Presidents and Prime Ministers. Pakistan had a female prime minister, Benazir Bhutto. Many European nations have had female presidents and Prime Ministers, Angela Merkel currently the head of Germany.

    That answer begs the question of why Sarah Palin was disrespected when going for the VP, and why in 2008 Hillary Clinton failed against a less experienced and less qualified newcomer. In addition, she was never offered the VP slot which is the old way to get to the presidency.

    Answer: Any person meeting the requirements to qualify for the presidency, and has the best platform can be or should be allowed to be the president of the US.

      Sarah Palin from Alaska mentioned in the same Conversation with Hillary? Not sure how that happens ~ smile

      Both are women, and both failed to be VP

    Why not? Are people afraid she'll bleed all over the country? I'm pretty sure most are past that time in their lives when they run for president.
