    It's that simple. Ideas, not physical attributes.

    Before you ask.... I'm an ISOLATIONIST. There's no need for a SecState if there is no interaction with other nations.
    Hard to stay on the topic isn't it. But I can see that an isolationist would have his own POV generated by what he sees in isolation. You are well practiced.

    You're the one who brought Clinton up, not me. Though i do thank you for the compliment.

    I marvel at the warped mind that can claim it is pretty much a lost cause but somehow TIME, not people such as himself, will right the 'wrong'. About as lazy and cowardly outlook on life as can be.

    On another point, if a woman's family might suffer if she runs for public office, (as if a man's family won't as well), then a lesbian who's thoughts on gay rights, or the lack there of, would be a winner for those people who hesitate at voting for a fertile, hetro, family oriented woman?

    Just wondering...

    It's simply the realization that like any other runaway train or automobile, feminism will eventually run its course and sanity will be restored to society. Getting in front of that car or train is not going to stop it. You have to wait until it runs out of fuel or it runs into some form of immoveable object.

    Maybe they are and maybe they aren't. We're never going to get the chance to prove it one way or the other, now will we?

    Option #1 (I'd be happy and excited to vote for a woman) is the closest to my point-of-view, but I couldn't choose it as it is just a tad too far off.

    I'm generally not "happy and excited" to vote for anybody unless they hold the vast majority my views, then I really don't give a rat's arse what gender they are.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I haven't suggested they can't. I have suggested they shouldn't. I believe that pretty much all of life is about what one SHOULD or SHOULDN'T do much moreso than what one can and can't do.
