For any job, we should pick people based on merit, not skin color, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, etc. If it's and old, White guy, so be it.

We have never selected the best person for the job; we select who we like and agree with.

I don't think there will ever be a woman president. I hope I'm wrong.

I still fail to see why gender is even a factor for presidency.

Why are we even having this conversation? All you people who want to vote for something because of their gender are just sexist.

Until gender doesn't matter, we will be talking about it.

While you may pride yourself on being not gender biased, it doesn't mean that society doesn't still have some kind of bias.

So until it is the 'norm' not the exception there will be talk.

How many women in the Republican Senate?
How many women in the Republican Congress?

What percentage of American voters are women?

Gender matters.

Will the republican party ever elect a female or black president?


For all of Obama's two terms, republicans firmly disagreed that they were racist. But again there has never been a non-white male republican candidate in the final race.
Absolutely. I know this would never happen but I'd love to see John James or Candace Owens run.

Gender matters.
"How many women in the Republican Senate?
How many women in the Republican Congress?"

People from both sexes run for office.

The people voting CHOSE who they want.

Some say there are more women then men in the country. So don't the women voters elects more women.

"There are only 10 states in the US with more men than women"

If we're going for the twofer route back in the day I think that the Condoleezza Rice would have been a good pick. She's smart, well poised and seemed to know her stuff. This is assuming that someone was a Republican. I suppose to the dems or someone leaning that way probably wouldn't like Rice.

Would so love to see her run ! Imagine her and Colin Powell running. How could the leftist's try and destroy them ?
