Well Carol Mosley Brauns was a candidate this year, but she dropped out early in support of Kerry. Fact of the matter is the U.S. is FAR FROM having a prominent female candidate. Sure the younger generations are diverse and open-minded, but you have to remember the era from which the ones in high power are from. Maybe when they die off, and the younger generation of open-minded individuals come into power, things MIGHT change.

While I heart CMB..... there's no way she was ever getting elected. Too many skeletons in her closet. She's a wonderful Ambassador and a great orator and motivator, but she has made choices that make her unviable.

Just elect Oprah. Everyone loves Harpo, eh?

If she is hoping he will lose she's hiding it well. She just made a spirited endorsement of his abilities and plans on Larry King.

yes, she did... as expected ! but when asked if we were to see former President Clinton out on campaign for Kerry soon, she went out on a long verbiage about medical orders and recommendations that sounded like excuses, instead of just stating something as simple as "as soon as possible" ....

I think the type of woman who wins the respect of her male counterparts is the kind of woman other women don't want to vote for...

...the no non-sense ball breaker type.

Politics behind the scenes is such a dirty business; only a woman who can "play the game" is going to rise to the level of consideration. You have to lie to people's faces and have them thank you for it...

...and choose to vote to keep you in office.

Its hard to play the game without coming out of it dirty if you're not a White Rich Male.

It would take a woman of unshakeable integrity (female Guliani mob busting type) or a woman of teflon priviledge (a daughter of a major politician).

I don't think that person is out there yet...

...although its foreseeable that there will be a female Vice Prez as soon as 2008 if Dubya loses.

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!!!

many americans dont even believe a woman should have a right to an abortation, even when its the result of rape,

hell, one in four women in america is raped before she dies,

this isnt the most woman -friendly of nations.

"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox"

You know what? I think your dad is correct. I do believe that Hillary to some degree hopes Kerry loses the election.If anyone thinks that Hilary doesn't have her eyes on the prize for 2008,they have some serious re-evaluations to do.

Sharapova,Kirilenko,Tulyaganova, are the three hottest women in the WTA!!!!

Huh? MOST Americans-even those who disagree with abortion, agree it's OK in cases of rape. At least the US is still debating about the value of human life-isn't that a good thing?

And-gomenasai, shitsureshimasu-but when has Japan been such a "woman-friendly" country? I lived there, and while I loved it a lot it is in no way paradise for women. Male chauvinism is so bad that many young women aren't even bothering to get married.

And the "1 in 4" women will be raped" figure includes date rape, a concept still unheard of in many nations.

Sorry again there going off on a whole country-but those in glass houses shouldn't throw bricks.
