  1. Jimmy the Dhimmi Says:

    This is sort of like that question, “Do you think the world is better off if America wins in Iraq?” where 20% responded no.

    My guess is that certain readers percive this poll question as a code for “Would you vote for Hillary Clinton?” Like some would percieve the question I cited as code for, “Do you support the war in Iraq?”

  2. Jeremy Says:

    Would I vote for a female candidate? I answered yes. A persons gender is irrelevant as far as I am concerned. There have been a great of leaders people of the female persuasion which prove this beyond any doubt. Queen Elizabeth the First of England comes to as does Catherine the Great of Russia and many, many more thereafter.

    Fact is, ones gender is no indicator as to how savvy a politician they will be. I don’t discount Hilliary Clinton in anyway because she happens to be the first woman to run for president of the United States, rather I discount her on her merits and her merits alone.

    America is almost entirely unanimous that it supports women and their coequal rights in every branch of our government, they fought hard for it and quite frankly it’s been long, long past due. But as far as Hilliary Clinton is concerned, I don’t believe she deserves the office simply because she [is] a woman. She’s got to earn her place in history like everyone else. I don’t “this” woman is the “right” woman to be our first female president. That’s just my honest opinion anyway.

    I think Jeremy should be the first woman president.

    I have to agree with Jimmy (oh my) because I’m sure people think of HRC when this question is posed to them. Stats and poll numbers are always skewed and people wise-up. I’d support a gay, pedophile non-white midget if he/she promised to get the government off my back, but there’s no way in hell I’d ever vote for Clinton. My point being the message is what matters, not the messenger.
