Isn't that what I said....Gosh...

Lol, sorry. I thought you were still saying women in general were better politicians, not just the few that shine through.

Not going to lie, i skipped over every comment just to respond to this.

Who exactly are you to judge the capabilities of a woman in power? How can you possibly decide that it is too much work for a woman? What about women in politics that just aren't "president"? What about women who are right up there in the army, whos job is full-time, and takes much more than your average male "mechanic".

Not all women want to work part-time, or be mothers or bake. Shouldn't be so sexist.

It's funny you skipped the comment before the one you replied to, which argued women are better than MEN. I think the modern fascination with feminism is taking a toll on the public. It's become perfectly acceptable for one to state women are better than men, but the other way around is met with shock, disgust and horror. Now that reaction is reasonable but it should go both ways. I was interested in feminism in that women and men are EQUAL. It seems, however, that the feminist agenda's modus operandi is to stigmatize male talent and exalt female talent. "Shouldn't be so sexist."

Double post, sorry.

Wanted to clarify that I DO agree with what you're saying, I just think you shouldn't have been so quick to jump at it, ignoring the post preceding it.

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.

I know that there are women in the Republican camp, and I never said all republicans are sexists, even though I apparently made it sound that way. Though I would use M. Bachmann as a better example and not Palin; Palin was just a nice toy, and accessorily is as much 'man' as her colleagues.

Sure enough there are women in politics, they're not excluded; and I think a woman as a presidential candidate would have support from politicians, republic or democrat. The problem is that being a woman would cost her many votes from the people, making it improbable she would beat a male counterpart except if she was clearly better than him.

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.

i never said ALL woman.

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

yea you believe your fairy's go on...
btw what you just said it utterly BS.

"men do, at the expense of their health, their safety, and sometimes their lives. Men earn more money than women because they make more sacrifices to make money, not because of "discrimination.""

:O
OMGEEEEEEEEEEEE

Now, let's look at men who instigated death;
Alexander the Great
Julius Caesar
Henry the VIII, as well as nearly all the other English, French, Swedish, Danish, Dutch, Spanish, and Italian kings who were in charge of wars, feuds, invasions, attacks, etc.
Hitler
And the list goes on.

The list goes on because there have been far more male leaders in history than female leaders.

The problem is that being a woman would cost her many votes from the people, making it improbable she would beat a male counterpart except if she was clearly better than him.

This mostly. There are people who simply don't want a woman in office. I don't think it would matter for certain groups of people whether or not they held similar ideals or belonged to the same party.

Yes, but this goes both ways. There are some who do want a woman in office and might vote solely on the fact that she possesses a vagina. For both sides, the attitude towards women isn't the best reason to vote, obviously.

Think about this, if a woman did run for president, both sides would probably end up calling the other sexist,

"You're just not voting for her because she is a woman."

"You're just voting for her because she is a woman."

p.s. What about the queen who messed up france and got her involved in the hundreds years war.

(supposedly one woman messed it up so another could save it(joan of arc).)

Queens weren't exactly elected for their presidential qualities, my friend, so I don't see a consistent link to this topic. Besides there were some really bad kings too. Not a great difference.
