Why no women presidents?

Just a question. Why is it such a taboo subject to talk about having a woman run for President of The United States? England and other countries have put women in charge of government for centuries. Why is it that you have to be a white Catholic or Protestant male to be President of The United States? Is this a covert form of sexism, racism and anti-semitism.......or is it that the right candidate has just not come along yet? This has always baffled me. I personally believe that a female president would make for a less dangerous foreign policy and a safer domestic environment. Consider how well a woman keeps the peace in your own home, only on a much larger scale. There is an inherent quality in a woman in charge that just makes everyone sit up and listen. And with a woman in charge, whether it's your Mom at home or your teacher at school, men are much less likely to jump up and fight each other. Any thoughts? Could this be the only thing that could save us from WW3????

Interesting post, however when you say look how a woman keeps peace in her own home....think of it like this....if america is her home.....than what do you think she's going to do about the neighbors kids....i.e.: iran, iraq? not to mention the fact that a woman is very emotional and that could hurt the desicion making....say for example a woman was president when 9-11 happend.....i can't see a woman handling that much carnage. women aren't allowed to battle in war....they shouldn't be presidents either....i'm sorry i'm not being sexist, i'm being realistic. but if a woman was going to run....or win an election i think it could be hillary clinton....so there may be some hope for you woman after all. all of this in my opinion of course.

I can always rely on you to stretch my brain in a different direction, Dog. I really don't know the answer, just thought I would stir the pot-that is the American Way isn't it?

Don't really have an opinion. If the person is up to the job, why try to shoot them down? Just like with Condy Rice....She is one heck of a smart lady and down with all the current events of the world. I don't understand why people like Ms. Boxer punked her out and called her a liar in the Senate hearings..........jealousy maybe? Tell ya what, I wouldn't want someone like Condy pissed at me. She could make one phone call and make your whole family disappear.

1. Men are stupid - not overall, but more so from socialization where they don't learn to apply patches to the holes blown in their egos, like women do.

2. We have a "fundamentalist infection" , equivalent to a herpes sore, that boomerangs back every time we momentarily kill it.
