    This isn't going to go well.

    It doesn't work in any universe. It is not possible for a woman to be in line with my political thinking and to be active in politics. To be in line with my belief system she is automatically NOT invovled in politics on ANY level.

    No. It would be very short and unless you happened to be in my condo at the time the "meltdown" probably wouldn't ever come to your attention unless you got to clean the mess off the walls and ceiling afterwards.

    You haven't given any rationale that I can see.

    Tradition, for one thing. There is a deep-rooted, instinctual reason why there have not been any major matriarchal societies in the world in the last millenium. The societies you find which are matriarchal in nature tend to be small, clan or family based socieites rather than larger onese. Women are not and never have been designed to be in charge of large political structures. It's not what they were designed for.

    My country's been there. Don't do it, women suck at running a country.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    If I thought she was qualified, sure why not? I wouldn't vote for a woman just because she's a woman though.

    True leadership and personal integrity are VERY rare,
    Why would we exclude half of our population from the list based on gender?
