I'm not likely to vote Republican, but I do wish to see both conservative and liberal women judged on their brains, ideas and accomplishments rather than on just their bodies.
On the one hand, I think the Republican establishment deliberately puts up "hot" women as candidates for office because they know many people vote with their ****s and they may rightly have a strategy there.

If people vote that way , it certainly doesn't show in Washington . Show me female politicians that look like movie-stars .
I don't know where you are trying to go with this but , I can't see any credibility in these statements .
Besides , just because a woman is 'hot' does not automatically exclude her from having a brain .
In your attempt to stereotype what men expect from women , you forgot to include staying home , barefoot in the kitchen , staying away from politics to start with .
Therefore , your assertions are self-destructive .
I would rather look at Palin anyday , before having to look at Clinton , Pelosi , Feinstein , Boxer , etc .
She can't be any worse than any of those . If she fails , at least she will look good while doing it .
While you are stereotyping the male , remember , you are doing the same thing to the female by equating 'nice-looking' , 'hot' , and 'good body' with bimbo and no brain ., which is what you essentially did in the OP .
As for the 'showcasing' of female candidates , rest assured that a female POTUS is coming . The times they are a-changin .
Displaying the nicer-looking females in the limelight is no different than any other 'business' , it is a marketing strategy .
Being 'hot' does not make you dumb or incapable of doing the same job that the ogress does .
