    The poll workers thing is probably because he is against women working. Any empowerment of women seems unacceptable to Tigger.

    He has said he is looking into moving to Iran. But here's his problem with it: He believes that anyone who leaves the country, and there is the slightest question about their actions being good for the US, should be put to death.

    He believes that beating women is proper. He has beaten girlfriends in the past (he's described a specific episode here at DP) and says the extent of the beating depends on the severity of the 'offense'.

    Why am I not surprised that she has so little self esteem; a mere HS graduate is qualified to vote and does.

    Are your genes fit for reproduction? That's a serious question, not trolling/flaming (Tigger has disabilities, I dunno if they are genetic).

    If she's the most capable of the candidates, why not?

    A candidate being a woman is extra points in my calculations. I don't buy into this whole "gender doesn't matter" routine. We need to move forward as a country and a woman president would be a nice step towards the acceptance of women as equally capable.

    That would totally depend on your definition of improvement based upon your point of view. I don't see an Athiest being more likely to get elected as "improvement", just the opposite.

    Well there are certainly a sect of certain folk who would certainly freak out about it because...well I don't know why. I have hard time understanding irrational ignorance.

    It will happen when it happens - I'm not about to abandon any of my real values under some false guise that 'we must have one'

    We WILL have one - just not right now . . . we'll have one when the right one comes along and people want her in office. Simple.

    It's not MY fault that most females in politics are pieces of **** Of all the notable figures I can think of none qualify. In fact - some that are 'out there' are the exact opposite of what I feel is important as far as qualities and experience goes.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I do. From my point of view, it's similar to any religious affiliation. Let's put it this way: would you view it as improvement if a Muslim or Mormon became more likely to get elected? How is this any different if you swap in atheist for Muslim/Mormon?
    *Note, I am not equating the beliefs or historical relevance of Atheism to that of any religion

    Feminism is a real value of mine.

    Do you honestly think this changes my position?

    H. Clinton would be fine for me (and I lean hard right on economics). Disclosure: she's a hawk, that helps.
