In generations past around the globe in the history of the world, men have been superior to women. Honestly, i believe that women's suffrage is a joke. Woman cannot fight in wars (i mean technically they can, but who wants a woman in your platoon with a machine guarding your back, i for one can't) they are have periods every month, and say a woman is in term and a crucial decision is brought to the attention of the board. And biologically woman are proven to be "cranky" at that time of month and would be much too harsh in determining decisions concerning national security and health care. Seriously, if you want to put a woman in the office, you might as well hand your @ss to the terrorists and the homosexuals because we will lose. This is america, not Oprah Winfrey's book club. Deal with it. Accept this now.

If you notice. Those current leaders of countries. Female leaders. A number of them are "President".

As women are presidents women can clearly be presidents.
Nothing in the US constitution bars women from being president.

Q.E.D. You lose.

YES but all of these countries have gone to the dogs.
Ireland- Full of old drunkards and "PUNKS". A country full of people who believe in leprechauns
New Zealand- Last time I checked was under control by Sauron and his evil minion of orcs
finland- they have fins, therefore they are not human, thus run by a woman
the phillipines- their national delicacy is ice cream on a bun, nuff said
mozambique- really? might as well bring chad into the argument you dunce
germany- she is a dominatrix, thus control, thus theoretically a man
liberia- thats not even a place, nice try
chile- their nation is named after a spicy food, nuff said
switzerland- all they do is ski, thus no economy, thus no male genatalia
india- i have diarreha after i eat that nations food, you expect to shpae an economy after that food industry, i think not

Arguments that women cannot be president are irrelevant when it comes to the question of how bad the countries are afterwards. Even if after sworn in every country simply imploded it would never the less be evidence for my assessment that women can be president. The case is still proven.

Your assessment that women cannot be good presidents is a moot point.

My argument stands.

No America need the best and you know that. Here are the facts.
One time I watching a non-fiction movie that if I recall was called Bobat or something. In it, the hero of the film, Bobat, is talking with two Satanist, I mean feminists and he tells them women have smaller brains then men. We need the biggest brains ( and balls- BILLY CLINTON!!!!!!) in the White House. Although women make up 54 percent of the population, how come they are 5 percent of the population that actually makes anything. And you might say because they are the "oppressed class" but why are they the oppressed class. Because they are inferior. Women are uncreative, afraid of conflict and skeptical of change. Obviously they would not have suffered such low status throughout the centuries if they had not deserved to.
One last point, Men were made in the image of god and women were made after his hairy left nut. But damn isn't Ann Coulter a sexy testicle.

The fact remains that women can be president. There's nothing prohibiting women from being presidents. Further, I have already shown that many women *HAVE* been president. QED.

Whether women would be good or bad presidents is a different argument all together, and the answer is it depends on the woman.

Women can and have been presidents.

I have been investigating the general idea behind a woman becoming President of any Nation and find it very intriguing.
I have not looked into the bio/psychological differences between the genders when making decisions, however I can't help but notice that obvious differences are very apparent.
Women approach problems somewhat different to men, they are definitely more subject to emotional influences. Typically they approach issues more passively (although I don't mean to generalise as I am aware of the likes of the 'Iron Maiden' etc). There are political positions that are dedicated to finding solutions with a passive vehicle, however, the president is not one of these. When making decisions on immigration policies for example, when presented with a sick /dying child a woman would be more likely to be sympathetic towards hoards of refugees wishing to leech off a countries social welfare system, the offspring of which bloats the already existing crime industry (if not feeding it). Again I am not trying to generalise, my point I guess is that yes a woman COULD make a good leader. However, a superpower such as the US who's policies and foreign influence affects the entire world, should never be controlled by anyone with impaired judgment whether it be impaired by emotion, selfishness and especially hypocrisy by those who protest for equality and yet still expect you to stand for them on the bus (apply the 'ladies first' attitude), give them half of your life savings, decide for you whether or not they will keep the baby, have default legal custody to the children, want to tee off closer to the hole, get 2 points in touch rugby when they score a try.

One further observation is that the only men that are for a woman being president are gay, if not then use this as a test for whether or not you actually are (it works I tried it and i'm not!!).

Because obviously, the ability to lead efficiently is dictated by traits carried in that part of the brain (Read: Penis)...

The second Aff. argument is based on stereotypes and rash conclusions. THos countries are no different with a women as president. ireland is still infamous for the hooligans and drunks, Indian food will always mess with your stomach, etc.

If you can prove to me that those "problems" are caused by a female being president, then I will agree.

In the end, it shouldn't be the gender that qualifies a person but the ability. Some women can be just as good if not better than some men as president and then there are some men that are better than some women as president. A person's gender should not be the up or down vote. You need to look at the person's records and qualifications. That being said, Hillary is not the woman that needs to be president.

Yes, unfortunately -- I really am in Austin right now. (I say that because I am originally from Nevada and am not liking the environmental adjustment...) Well that and I see Texas as a state full of people with a double dose of overbearing patriotism that I have never experienced before.

Anyway, you've gotten the wrong person, but thank you for inquiring...
