What does that mean? Women have different personalities, and last time I heard, Margaret Thatcher is female. "Diplomatic" "semi-pacifist" and "calmness" aren't exclusively feminine traits; they're also desirable in men.

I don't think that ever would have happened, Hillary would have crushed him as easily as Obama did.

The country is more than ready for a female President. It's just that we don't have any candidates.

When I said "you people", I meant people who don't believe in religion OR people who love to bash it. I must apologize. This is not necessarily you, so I shouldn't have used it.

The Bible does not say specifically that women cannot lead, but says that men are to lead in the church and at home, and women to be in support and advisory roles. Since the Church is an example of lifes roles, my belief is that women should not lead the govenment. Not all Christians believe this and some - too many - have watered down their beliefs to adhere more to political correctness. This could explain why many countries have or have had women leaders. In the event you are wondering, if a woman were elected President, I would have to follow her leadership.

I agree. McCain wouldn't have won even if it had Hillary Clinton against him.

My apologies, I was just reading some articles on the rise of feminism in the international system, and one of the main themes that I kept hearing was how feminists felt that a true female leader should be one who represents those attitudes I posted. I am not under the illusion that those traits are exclusive to one group... should have cleared that up.
