Do you think the U.S.A will ever have a female president ?  If they ever do I hope for their sake its not Sarah Palin. Also I am glad in Australia we dont have politicians that stupid. I think Michelle Obama would be great

Oh, I am sure there will be one. Soon as you start voting sensibly.
Women are, by nature, more level headed, less inclined to rash decisions, more prone to listen to others, and have more common sense. Everything you need for a ruler!

woman also are very caring for their family. and often do not want to have a full time job but rather work part time.

this is 1 of the biggest reasons why there still are not much female "leaders". it's to much work for them. they are not willing to sacrifice as much as man do.

Not in the U.S.
Lots of women there live by themselves and take care of their kids, with no husband. Many women work full-time, women often sacrifice more then men.
The only reason there are so few women leaders is because men don't like voting for women. And that is the only main reason. Without men's weakness in voting, you'd have a woman as the President.

A female president in the US? That'll never happen, not there. And I'm sure the first woman that the Republicans would be ready to vote for would be some kind of Maggie Tatcher clone, a horrible lady even worse than their male counterpart, crafted from the strong concurrence and discrimination. A president like masterforger described would be wonderful, unluckily she wouldn't stand a chance to get elected.

i actually wouldnt surprised if one day a woman would be allected FOR being a woman. when people feel a person has less chances because of something like that its actually the opposite. i will also go wild and say that women will naturally feel closer (espacially since she will be the first lady) to her.

i dont think i sounded sexist but just in case... im not

Is it bad that the first thing I thought of coming here was black ops 2?

we dont have politicians that stupid

ALL politicians are stupid.

its not Sarah Palin

Wait... What's that in the distance? Is that...Russia from my backyard?

I think Michelle Obama would be great

lol no. Just no. Just friking no.
Now because I said that, more likely than not one of you will get butt hurt and comeback with some sort of argument that I most likely won't see ever again because, as I said, I thought only of black ops 2.

Yeah! Lets vote using sexism! What happened to you, forger? Did your disease cause you to need a lobotomy?

Bs. The reason that there have been few women leaders is the same reason that we have not had a black president for so long and we won't have another minority president for a while. They don't get elected because they have not gotten on the roster to get elected, and that is pretty much the only reason.

Really? That old "All republicans are sexist" thing? Sarah Palin, a women who showed many of the things Republicans liked, was a vice president candidate. The women the Republicans will vote for is a Republican women. The women the Democrats will vote for will be a Democrat. America will probably have one in the future, the second a competent one decides to run as a republican/democrat.

You are somewhat correct, if I read you right. Idiots like Forger will vote for a women out of sexism, and there will no doubt be a few women who vote for her out of simple want for wanting a women in office, the same way there where a few people who voted for Obama for wanting a black president.

Wait... What's that in the distance? Is that...Russia from my backyard?

...When did she say that, anyway? I can never find the original source.

Women leaders have, historically, been NO DIFFERENT then male leaders. Bloody Marry, anyone? Name any historical female leader. Go ahead. Now name a few historical male leaders. Assuming you didn't choose the outliers (You could have chosen a great man and a horrible women, or a horrible man and an evil women, throwing off the scenario) from around the same time and culture, and they will be near identical leaders.

This is America. Land of the free, where everyone is equal. Ideally, race, religion, and gender should have nothing to do with who gets your vote. Saying "Will we have a female president?" Is like saying "Will we have an Asian president?", the real question is "Does it matter?"

I just came here to say, uh, everything 314d1 did. Good job man.

One point to reenforce: Women leaders will not be different from male leaders. They will consistently act in the best interests of their nation and maintaining its power while advancing the goals of their party. Understanding this truth should be an important part of voting habits.

And while the reasons women have not held chief executive office are complex and uncertain, I'm sure no one wants to read my 1500 word essay on the matter. 314d1's narrative is basically correct: historical disadvantages continue to oppress minorities and women despite legal equality... if they have it. I'd like to take this time to point out that the USA explicitly does not have equal rights across the sexes. So if anyone was gonna make a point built around the notion that it does, you know, don't.

I'm sure I'll see a female president in my lifetime. I'm not really worried about it either way. Oh, and you CAN see Russia from parts of Alaska. Stop being tools.

Sarah Palin, a women who showed many of the things Republicans liked, was a vice president candidate.

I always got the impression the only reason she was picked for vice president was to help pull in votes just because she was a woman. It was something of a sick stage show.

Though overall I agree with what both 314d1 and Xzeno said.
