There is also the unlikely chance for an atheist, Hindu, Buddhist, transgender, and other minorities!

And even less for a Muslim.

No, no, and no.

Someone of East Asian descent has a better chance of becoming president of the U.S. than a gay one, so that should tell you something.

In relatively recent times, there have only been a handful of openly gay heads of state around the world.

What are their policies? I don't give a crap if someone is gay. I'd just want to know if they are capable of national leadership.

Of course. 10% of the population is either gay or bi-sexual so the chances of one becoming President aren't 0.

It has been rumored that James Buchanan was gay, so we may have already had one.

And to the above post, I believe the percentage is really 4.5.

Why is the left so hung up on identity politics? Just pick the person you think would do the best job. Who cares what gender they are, color they are, orientation they are....JC already.
