    Can you see irony in denying women access to the presidency because of gender. yet now it matters?

    Isn't it ironic that color, race, and gender should not matter in choosing our leaders, yet the present president chose to emphasize his color (though he qualified to run because his white mother was a citizen) and his party's current presumptive nominee bases her run in praiseworthy and historic terms due to her gender?  Wasn't her predecessor Secretary Albright pitching the same cause as the reason women should vote for their "gender candidate"?

    When the Democrats support the transgender agenda so strongly and what they call "fluidity" I don't see how they could possible elevate a real biological female any higher than a guy in a dress.  The entire premise of allowing anything other than Qualifications to influence a decision as important as the national leadership is literally mind-boggling.  Furthermore, how anyone can actually believe that being one color or another, or one sex or another influences an individuals decision making, ability to lead, or any other characteristic - it's beyond logic. 

    Gender is a term which has no finite definition, therefore should never be used in any decision making on any level anyway.

      really? perhaps you can explain why all presidents have been men? are they really so superior, or is it gender that places them above? I say it's gender that gives men power, not qualifications or superiority. it's about time they step aside.way past

      Let's look back, at least a little.  In those dark ages of politics American society had the males working to support the family and the mothers mostly caring for the family and raising the kide. Now?  Leaders needed our-of-the-home experience then.

      So Leslie, you want to what?  Prove to everyone that a woman can run America better than a man?  Sounds like a decision made without any real merit to me

    Making the voting for the presidency about color or gender should be irrelevant. The irony is that after electing a black president twice there is even more clamor of Racism in the US.

    The liberals conned the people into thinking that not electing a black president would be discrimination. But it was OK to dismiss the patriotism of a US war veteran by simply saying he was a clone of pres GW Bush.

    Now we are being told by the same liberals that not voting for a women would be discrimination. Even though those liberals viciously attacked a women republican for the VP.

    We also don't hear that Hillary is a clone of pres Barack Obama.

    There is more liberal social engineering than there is irony.

    Loyal party voters are not very bright, actually rather dim as they will swallow whatever the party throws down on them.

    To vote for a corrupt candidate only because she is a woman is sexist.
