Plays Well With Others...
That's a good point. Actually when you put us against other countries, including third world nations, we don't look so hot on some things.
dont forget to add Pakistan, India and Turkey who all used to have women as the Prime Minister.
Is the idea of living in Liberia or Indonesia really that appealing? The US is the world's superpower because of the way it does things. PC or not, it's a good idea to stick with what works. I hope that Hillary Clinton manages to win the DNC nomination in '08, though. The GOP has had some major problems lately, so it would help to have a guaranteed landslide victory for a continued GOP White House. ;o)
I am SO NOT EVEN going to say anything about poomstr's comment.
What I will say, however, is that you've made an EXCELLENT point and I think it's because male politicians are terrified of having women in power. It goes to the whole idea of men in power are hot, but women are ball-busters and bitches.
It freaks men out because if a woman was in power and things turn out better, everyone will wonder why it couldn't have been done earlier.
