    Do you think a Female will run for president in the next 50 years? I think it's a great idea for this to happen. I don't know why there are people out there against having this happen. It would be a big part in American history.

    Yeah it would for sure, but at the same time don't just support a candidate solely because she is a female. There are female politicians, CEOs and leaders who are just as crony and corrupt as any male political figure. Investigate the person, see if she stands for the working class of the country she claims to want to represent (and not the benefits of big corporations) and then decide from there. Just picking a woman cuz she's a woman isn't a reason to pick her. Choose someone because they are progressive and want to effect REAL change in our world, not just because she's a female. For example, if Hillary Clinton runs for president I won't be impressed because she's a pro-corporate elitist who poses like a liberal (and not very well, might I add) and never discusses the real issues that effect people's day to day lives, like the Patriot Act, etc. Condeleeza Rice is another sell-out who thinks only for those in positions of power, like herself. Greed is greed is greed, penis OR vagina.

    Personally, I don't see why anyone should be concerned about a female running for office, as if gender really means anything. All I want is somebody who will work for the people; it doesn't matter if they're male or female. I am not going to hold my breath, though, that's for sure.

    Whoever runs for office - male or female, Democrat or Republican - you can be sure they will be a puppet of the Elite. You don't make it very far otherwise, and you certainly won't be elected to the highest office in the land.

  5. I don't know about all that, but it would leave an impression on woman's lib.


    I agree with ChanginTimes:
    ... gender isn't going to matter when it really comes down to it ...

    it's not going to happen while conservative republicans control the the country. they have their perfect idea for women: give up your life, stay at home, and make me a sandwich. if it says it in the bible, it must be true.

    it'll only happen i feel when liberals come into office. or radical centrists.

    If a black woman in a wheelchair who survived 9/11 would run, she would win.

    i know a woman would be far less likely to plunge us into a pointless war

    that's probably true, although there are a lot of racists still, however a lot of them don't vote.

    i'd like to see someone in a wheelchair run....

    bad joke, i know, but i couldn't resist

    look at condeleeza, she is a black, female, carbon copy of bush. you have to learn that gender is a figment of your imagination.

    I don't know if Hillary would win, plenty of people despise her...she isn't very charismatic...and I don't think having a woman would be inherently better or worse, it would depend.

    I didn't mean any offense by it! hehe I just always have felt the need to move as far away from the 80s as we possibly can! :) It was a horrible decade that I'm glad I was too young to really understand. lol

    but seamonster, Hillary is hated on both the right AND the radical left. she's a poser (like her husband...a pretend Democrat) who is in office to uphold the position of power they now occupy. It's a matter of who is on top versus who is on the bottom, rather than the stupid, tired, old, and proverbial "right vs. left" paradigm. It's a structure based completely on class-based worth, ie. who's got the power of $$$ and the power through the pushing of pens on papers...versus the vast majority of us who struggle every day to keep our heads above water. The "left vs. right" squabble is not just a major distraction from the radical (read: REAL) issues, but it's a dead horse that legions of political drones, especially on the corporate media, keep on kicking, and kicking, and still kicking again.

    But getting back on point, having a woman president would be a nice token gesture, and certainly a landmark for the more-oppressed gender, but it's not something that's on the forefront of most women's rights activism. And besides, as a radical myself, I don't think the presidential office is worthy of being held by ANYone because, well, the office itself isn't worthy of existing, due to its corrupting and corrosive nature.

    Oh I agree, but many many people hate Hillary Clinton, and if she runs against a halfway likeable republican she will never win.

    First off, there are no half-likable republicans anymore lol, and second, Bush is arguably the most hated president in our nation's history, and he was "elected" BOTH times. The electoral process is dead. The voters decide nothing. I don't believe that Bush was elected legitimately in either 2000 OR '04. Say what you want. "you", meaning anyone. I can already hear the skeptics beating on their tom toms.

    I strongly dislike Hillary Clinton. I find her to be vile in almost every way possible. She is a socialist, globalist shill, just like her criminal husband. They are such good actors, though, acting like they have the average American citizen's best interests at heart. In reality, their goal, as is with most high-ranking Dem-Rep frauds, is serving the Elite's New World Order agenda. The Clintons, like the Bushes, are a sick breed of "human being". They are barely worth mentioning, in my opinion.

    Well there aren't many likeable to me, but I'm hardly the average American. I'm just saying I don't think she would have any chance of winning, the last thing I'm trying to do is debate the vailidity of the electoral process.

    I should be out of here by then anyway, so I'll be probably here on these same forums getting updates on whats going on:)

    basically as long as this fundamentalist Christian trend os going on, I don't think you will see a Democratic president.
