A good friend of mine who is fairly active in florida politics and has always been a political mind, used to ask this question at college keg parties: Who will be president first a black man or a white woman?
The answer was almost always a black man but not until 2020 or 2050. So, in some ways we’re ahead of the curve. But with this in mind, I find myself wondering what exactly do people see in Obama? I know that he is touting change, and I know we need change, but is saying you’ll bring change a full platform for a presidential canidate?
As a country we are dissatisfied, as we should be. But we cannot be reactionary voters, especially if we’re women.
My friend notes that for her this is a gender war. (She wouldn’t say that to her constituates, but she feels it.) America does not like women in power, feminists should.
Right now we face huge International problems and we need someone with experiance in the hot seat. Hillary is that canidate, and as far as I’m concerened her being a woman is just a nifty perk.
