During a Saturday discussion about Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) potentially running for president on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” host Joy Reid asked her panel if the United States of America was going to be the last country in the West to elect a woman as president.



“It does seem to me that it was easier to elect a black man, in a sense, than to elect any woman,” Reid stated. “So what are we talking about? Are we going to be the last Western country on Earth … What are we talking about, ten years, 20 years? When is this country going to be ready?”

The desperation of Democrats to elect a woman president might cause them to make sure the nominee in 2020 is female above anything else

If so it will only be because we were the last western nation to put up a worthy female candidate. It will speak well of us if we only elect a woman when it is the right woman, and will speak poorly of us if we elect a woman just so we can say we elected a woman.

A lot of dems/libs from California are anti-gun and support gun control. They might win the urban areas in the West Coast and Northeast, but would turn off alot of voters in the midwest and south.

Put a well qualified, "honorable" woman on the ballot and she'll have a good chance of winning.

Look at what Satan's stepdaughter almost did in Nov 16.

No one loves Joy Reid as much as i do, but this is a non issue to me.

The United States has already elected a black president, and we're the lowest group on the totem pole. We're damn sure lower on the totem pole than white women.

Hillary Clinton could've easily won this past election if she'd had her campaign and message together, but she rejected the populism that Trump was smart enough to jump all over. She was trying to be too middle of the road instead of acting like a damn Democrat. We're a liberal party...BE A DAMN LIBERAL. Say that we're getting out of the wars, bringing our troops home, getting healthcare for all Americans, allowing Americans to buy their medicines from Canada, negotiating prescription costs for Medicare, starting up a major public works project for infrastructure across America, investing more money into public education, ending the drug war and decriminalizing drugs on the federal level, etc, etc...

Enough with Democrats that pretend to be Republicans.

When a woman is qualified and I agree with her politically, I will very happily vote for her. I won't vote for a woman just because she is a woman. That would be sexism.

I know that you are well aware that ONLY the Leftists can determine "sexism".

It's interesting and ironic that California is so liberal yet they have never elected a female governor.

We won't see a woman being elected for a very very long time - decades. Republicans won't elect a woman, they just won't, it's doubtful they would even nominate one. And Democrats nominated one and the Republican messaging became Democrats are anti-men; ignoring that every Democratic president has been a man.

The reality is women will be judged as women first while men will be judged as leaders first. Kim Jong Un or Duterte are not judged as male leaders even though they are men. But a female leader will be judged as a female first. Further, women do not support other women in the United States. Women attacked Hillary for her hair, her weight, her age, her clothes, Trump insulted her backside, they even attacked her willingness to stay with a man who cheated, while elected a known cheater. They preferred to elect the cheater rather than elect the victim of a cheater.

And let's not pretend this male president is doing well for the country, it's a complete disaster. We have the Game of Thrones going on in the White House right now and no one is saying anything about it being a reflection of a male president. Yet if a female president had this going on, it would be all about it being because it's a woman in office. So no, we will not be seeing a female president for a very long time, certainly past the baby boom generation at the very least.

Haha... the bold is not what happened.

You got... "I'm with her" "It's my turn" - and THAT message wore her down to where she needed to take breaks.
