Would you be more like or less likely to vote for your candidate because she's a woman?

    My views: I would be very excited to see a woman who held my views run for president or even vice president. I would be excited to see someone whose views match my own running for office, but her being a woman would be the cherry on top. I would not go so far as to vote for any average woman just because she's a woman, because I feel the first female president is going to be held to higher standards and have her every move scrutinized by her critics. A sub par female president would only set us back.
    I could care less about the gender of our President. All I care about is whether they are honest and hold at least most, if not all of my views. Or at the very least is willing to honestly consider other view points.

    Edit PS: I would have voted in this poll but the options don't take into account of not careing what the gender is of our President.

    Tigger-
    again you have the cart before the horse, because you don't like the way history has unfolded doesn't make your opinion true. Facts are just that, opinion is what you choose to believe. You keep getting them confused and when questioned about it you use the Luddite 'reasoning' of it is what I believe so there, a sort of blind thoughtless faith not unlike a religion of disconnect. You see, just like an ostrich with it's head in the sand, you refuse to look around and are rather proud you are incapable of self examination. You lock in on one 'philosophy' never truly develop it, mainly because it can't be developed past a bumper sticker phrase, and think you are somehow enlightened.

    This usually happened in the late teens but you seem older, stunted development with little chance of that changing.

    Now I said all that without any anger, or hate in my heart, I hold no hope it will change you a lick. I don't think many folks here take your trollish pronouncements seriously and your firm opinion, ready to flee the best nation on earth for one that is as brutal as any 1984 scenario. (be honest, you are going no where)

    I don't see this as a massive waste of time, talking to you, you tend to flatter yourself, not much massive about you intellectually. I don't see talking about basic philosophy as a massive waste of time, holding a grudge for centuries sure seems like one. Kind of the opposite of your value system on time wastage,

    Women have shown gender roles are as obsolete as the alpha male and his companions having primary breeding rights within the tribe. Like medieval medicine, philosophy, and construction methods, roles in society do change and for the better, but it is a process, not a microwave pizza. Even in your beloved medieval times alpha male breeding dominance was obsolete. The concept that in a very inbred linage has been Ordained by Gawd to rule without question was quite the rage back then, a development of alpha male breeding, now it is money and power as a sign Gawd is gracious to a select few, but now society has developed so that more are capable of reaching the elite ranks. (one regressive measure some are trying to codify into our society is a return to heredity rather than merit as a wealth enhancer)

    That came about as society specialized and began the walk down Industrialization Way with the rise of a merchant class, which started us down the road to a more broad based and enlarging credit system. Few Americans would have the cash to buy a home, our middle class rose as credit was passed to them from an almost exclusive ownership of the elite.

    Society progresses as the power or benefits of membership pass to more, not less hands of the society. It is like making sausage, not pretty to watch at times but a tasty produce when done. Women going from servants to CEOs may upset a few, but more than one petty noble was distressed when merchants could enforce their IOUs on nobles and get the somewhat run down Starter Castle...

    That was scary after seeing Obama get in saying just the same thing, and she meant just that she was a woman and not anything about her ideas.
    Obama was using his race as a selling point? Care to cite that?

    So he did exactly as you suggested.

    What a racist thing to ask.

    Where did I say in my post that he referred to his race? I said different and you jumped to race.

    You want to call me racist, go right ahead. Just do me this: What were you referring to?

    If her political platform was inline with mine and had demonstrated the desire and ability to push towards that end, then yes.

    Besides, women are not the most unelectable category out there; that would be atheists.

    Its rare that I feel I want to vote for anyone man or woman. Sadily however I have never voted for a woman. They just never match up with me enough to feel comfortable in doing it, sorry. I would if they did, but it just hasn't happened yet.

    Re: Would You Vote a Woman into Presidential Office?

    Sure I'd vote for a woman, but your choice goes from estactic about it (yeah, like I would ever feel that way about any polotician) to some reservations.

    Heck, right now if we elected a bunch of hard working single mothers who know how to budget, we would be a lot better off than with that bunch of clowns up there now.

    A hardcore feminist commie witch like Clinton, not in a billion years, but one with common sense and thinks the writings of Marx should be used for toilet paper, sure.

    Re: Would You Vote a Woman into Presidential Office?

    I would absolutely vote for a woman. Too many people are hesitant about electing women because they are afraid they'll get too emotional during their period, and they'll bomb North Korea or something. Women carry the load for the entire family, most of the time, and I think it's entirely possible that a woman could carry the load for her country, with no problem.
