    I'd have to vote for whoever pisses off my mother-in-law the most then.

    I think Capt'n and The Mark need to stop trying to add things which are unequal and answer the question.

    Now see, the man would pi$$ off my mother in-law more because she wants overies in the oval office, so that's who I would vote for.

    Re: Ceteris Paribus

    This is a simple question that people are making more difficult than needed.

    If they are both exactly equal except for gender the answer for me is easy.

    Men have lead this country for a few hundred years now, and where has it gotten us?

    Time for women to have a chance.
    It couldn't possibly get worse could it?

    Ceteris Paribus means "all things being equal". That's "all things". Nothing I say alters the meaning of cetris perabis, so I happen to leave some absure detail out, that doesn't alter the query.

    Neither one. Even if all things were equal, they are still both politicians and probably slimy *** scumbags. If I can't have a choice between the lesser of two evils then I won't vote

    Re: Ceteris Paribus

    Assuming both candidates are equal in every way I would choose the woman because of the jump forward it would provide our society on gender based issues. Choosing the man will give no extra benefit to the country.

    Depends, is the woman candidate post menopausal?
