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.


    You women had a chance to elect the first woman VP in American history 4 years ago.

    Your words now are just empty rhetoric.

    The question was not "would you vote for a woman solely because she's a woman", the question was "would you vote for a woman who had your political platform and was a qualified candidate". Perhaps we could have elected the first woman VP in history 4 years ago; but that would have meant McCain as President and a dumb **** as VP.

    H. Clinton would be fine for me (and I lean hard right on economics). Disclosure: she's a hawk, that helps.
    Feminism is important to me, too - but I'm not going to ignore a better candidate because of my gender-views. Gender equality does not mean gender superiority or favoritism.

    If a male candidate is better qualified over a female candidate you bet I'll vote for him - shameless. I have no shame in upholding my values and not sacrificing them.

    Don't tell me you wish we all joined vaginas and voted in Clinton - or Palin in the future.

    We get the whole "I'm a super-value person" routine. I have my own values, and I adhere to them as well. See: signature.

    What do people mean when they say "Feminism"? Equal pay for equal work and not be restricted by sex but by ability or women should have access to all jobs and if they cannot meet the requirements, then requirements should be lowered or means of assisting should be mandated, the first type of Feminism, hey, no problem, I am all for it, the secound type, forget about it. Meeting existing standards, which usually exist because it is needed such as the military and fire fighters, means meeting standards regardless of whether someone has "indoor" or "outdoor" plumbing, if not enough women to satisfy someone doesn't make the cut, too bad.

    Well the vote went the other way, so instead of a dumb **** as a VP, we now have one for P and a VP. And frankly our choices this time around don't look any better, this years election is kind of like choosing between cutting off your left thumb or your right thumb, it's going to hurt like hell either way. So I am voting for the dumb **** that hasn't already spent four years there.

    I posted what I'm pretty sure is the most recent Gallup poll on the subject on page 13 of this thread, and things have improved... slightly.

    What difference does gender make? Offer some candidates. I would have voted for Hillary over McCain. I would vote for Rice in a heartbeat. I was a big fan of Jean Kirkpatrick running back in 88 and the 90s.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Yeah, if they're for equality, I'm all for it. However, to quote The Amazing Atheist, "Feminism is the idea that we can make both sexes equal by focusing solely on the issues of one of them." Unfortunately, in far too many cases, feminists, if they see something someone else has that they don't, proclaim "I want that!" but if they have something someone else doesn't, respond "hell no, that's mine!"
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
