IS THE UNITED STATES READY FOR A WOMEN PRESIDENT? — by Catherine Morgan
As a woman, I want to believe that answer to this question is yes. As an objective observer, I have to wonder. In reading comments on other forums, and listening to the commentary on news programs….There seems to be a lot of hate Hillary banter going on. I don’t have a problem with anyone who dislikes a politician based on their abilities to do the job or their qualifications. However, most of what I have been hearing has less to do with her qualifications, and more to do with her being a woman. Quite frankly, I take offense to it.
I wouldn’t consider myself pro-Hillary. At this point, I still want to wait and hear debates and get more facts before I commit to one opinion or another. But one opinion I am ready to commit to is…My lack of faith in the general voting public to vote for a candidate that is best qualified for the job. When did we start caring more about whether we would want to have a beer with the candidate, then whether the candidate has an ounce of common sense? Am I the only one who just doesn’t get it?
I think, if we don’t get our “collective” acts together for this next election…And actually elect a candidate based on this or her qualifications and not their likability – This country is going to be in an even bigger mess than we are now. The truth is, we need more than just a good president, we are really going to need a miracle worker. I just wonder if we as voters are going to be up to the task, and get passed our “American Idol” voting mentality. But, I sure hope we can.
So…Are we ready for a women president? I would like to know what you think. I know I am ready. If Hillary can prove herself as the best candidate, I will surely vote for her. And if she wins, it will be one small step for women, and one giant leap for America. I for one would be proud to see a woman as the President of the United States of America.
Food for thought: What if both the Republican and Democratic Parties ended up with women as their candidate for the Presidency??? That’s a mind blower??? May the best woman win????
Well, tell me what you think…After-all, that’s what this blog is all about.
