    The part in which you imply that women could lead our society to a higher level.

    I hit myself in the face with a shovel in an attempt to understand your reasoning, but it was to no avail.

    Before I go any further...I was definitely joking.

    But women turning out to support Hillary is the same thing as Irish people supporting Kennedy and Black people supporting Obama (as in...it has nothing to do with political skill).

    To me, if the institutions, policies, etc....that men have instituted for the last several thousand years (around the world) are still not working....meaning we are still a world of genocide, poverty, inequity...logic dictates that women should be given the chance to run these institutions, make policies, etc....assuming they are qualified and competent for the job (no freebies!). I know I don't usually continue to repeatedly throughout my life time keep doing the same things that don't work. Usually a person tries another method in terms of self improvement.

    That has to be one of most truthful political statements I have heard in a long time.

    I knew you were kidding!
    Truth be told, I don't think that people care about skill this time around. People seem to care about truth-telling and a fresh start. I read an article about presidents that had relatively little experience when elected and this did not seem to be a factor in people's ming. I knew you were kidding!
    I don't know the statistics on Kennedy, but there are actually a TON of young...white, latino, black, etc...supporters for Obama. I went to the local office the other day to see what the fuss was all about. I can tell you that I live and teach in a largely white RED county...and Obama is the only name that you hear mentioned. If students speak to me about Obama...and no other candidate, I am certain that the kids are repeating what they hear at home. Middle schoolers don't have too many free thoughts at this age. I think we're already seeing the polls aren't matching what you actually see when you are in the field. The media spins...what they want to spin.

    But we're probably off topic??

    Are they turning out in droves to support her? Last I heard Obama was getting the lion's share of female votes, but of course that was before Hill let lose with the tears. Maybe that changed things.

    How sad it is that a little thing like that can change the state of the election. I guarantee if I went to 90% of the diehard supporters of certain candidates they couldn't tell me where their guy/girl stood on most issues.

    This issue has little dependence on gender. People who are in power, and have been for a long time will hold steadfast to archaic and inefficient ideals. What we really need is a complete regime change amongst the powers that be. Be it a woman or man.
