    It depends, is she making me a delicious sandwich and a batch of cookies while simultaneously washing my stinky pants? Just kidding. Kind of.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Dv..when I became a police officer none of the women that are police officers today could qualify nor a good majority of the men....If you had to wear eyeglass's you could not be a Police Officer...you could not be under 5'10 or be above 6'4 to qualify you had to take a written test a physical accruity test a medical physical and a comprehensive psychological evaluation.
    You had to climb a rope I believe 40' and of course come back down without falling...you had to drag a 200lb dummy through an obstacle course...a task many strong men had to struggle with, pure dead weight. You had to do X amount of pushups in X amount of time...X amount of situps in X amount of time and X amount of Pullups plus run an obstacle course timed. You are correct that the standards have been lowered dramatically to allow the inclusion of alot of people that could not have made the more stringent standards but that also includes alot of men that couldnt back then also.
    One good point is that the have increased the educational requirements to be a police officer...

    So you did vote for a woman if you supported McCain.

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.
    If a woman is the best person for the job than then I don’t care about her gender. Just because we have not had one yet does not mean that we are resistant to having a woman. Perhaps the politicians are the resistant ones. We the people have to be given a viable choice.

    Depending on what she looks like; I think that the people would be ok with a woman president doing the interns (and leaking the pictures).

    I did not support Mr McCain OR his running mate. If he had chosen a male running mate I MIGHT have held my nose and voted for him. After his choice there was no way I could support him.

    Seriously? I could respect you if you didnt support Sarah for one of a plethora of reasons... but to not support her because she is a woman is just ... stupid.
