Is America Ready for a Woman President?
This week's Newsweek featured Hillary Clinton on the cover with the title, "Hear Her Roar." Within the edition were numerous articles devoted to gender and politics. In the article, "Just Leave Your Mother Out of It," Kathleen Deveney shares that according to a recent CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll 34 percent of adults do not think America is ready for a woman president (compared with 26 percent who said we weren't ready for a black president).
To me, the question isn't so much "Is America Ready for a Female President," but rather if not, "Why the hell not?" It is ridiculous that this is still up for debate in the 21st century, but apparently, here we still are.
What's your opinion about gender and U.S. politics?
