    I'd be absolutely fine voting for a woman as long as she was the one that most represented my views

    Should just rich white landowners be allowed to vote? That, after all, was tradition for awhile.

    You didn't give me a choice so here is mine. I vote for the person I thought could do the best job . H. Clinton is an example of a strong possibility. Her gender is part of her presence. She uses it correctly in places like the international stage; and the way she does it doesn't put her at a disadvantage. Other women can do this too, being female is not a disadvantage. Also, Tigger, consider how Clinton does her 'man's' job.

    In other words you didn't have a point to begin with.

    I wouldn't go quite that far, but it would be closer to that than what we have today.

    Mrs. Clinton does a job which shouldn't exist in the first place, and even if it does should not be the pervue of a woman. She has NOT accorded herself in the manner which I would want anyone to in that position. This is not wholely her own failing, but as much a failing of what is currently expected of people in that office.

    Before you ask.... I'm an ISOLATIONIST. There's no need for a SecState if there is no interaction with other nations.
