    Ceteris Paribus

    Suppose you are voting in a primary.

    Suppose your party has 2 candidates who are equally qualified in every way.

    Suppose you agree with each candidate’s politics and ideals, that those politics and ideals are the same between the 2 candidates.

    Suppose one is a man, the other is a woman.

    Who would you vote for?

    At this time in history, the man.

    We don't need the distractions of gender novelty taking our attentions further from the important, urgent issues of our time.

    ......Hi!....welcome to the 21st century. Where women are now allowed in our military, where they fight terrorism on all fronts and have the right to vote. Your sexist brain may now explode. Goodnight.

    ------------------

    Yeah I'd vote for whomever will piss my mother in law off the most. At this moment it looks like Kucinich...she calls him 'The Rat'. Ah I love wasting what little power I have in this democracy.

    You would obviously choose her for the novelty.

    I rest my case.

    Re: Ceteris Paribus

    I would chose the candidate in the order of these criteria:

    1) The one whose personality, IMO, matched best with the Presidency.
    2) The one who lived closest to my state.
    3) The one who was in better physical health.

    No. I'd chose whomever I believe will make a better leader. This action is usually preceded by analyzing the issues and where they will stand on them before voting for them. Regardless of sex.

    Such a situation will never happen. There will always be a difference from one person to the next, unless their brains are exact duplicates of each other. Even then, their staff/advisors would be different.

    If such a situation occurred, my probable voting parameters would be:

    • The one who had the best TV adds.......
    • The one who looked nicer.
    • The one whose personality appeared best for the job.
    • In general, the candidate who I thought had the best chance of winning the election.


    Basically, if there were actually two candidates who I agreed with, I would want the one with the best chance of beating the other party’s presidential candidate to be our presidential candidate. It only makes sense.

    It would depend on the exact situation, taking into account many more parameters (some of which are outlined above) than you give, for me to make such a decision.
