    There are many threads about Sarah Palin, some pro-, some con- and some relatively neutral. This thread is providing a poll to see if anyone thinks that a regular "All-American Mom" can ever be president. Do moms have what it takes to run the USA or not?

    Any rare soul with the right stuff can be President and do it well, even people with ovaries who know how to use them.

    Do you consider Hillary an "All-American Mom"?? I left that definition deliberately vague.
    I just don't see any women qualified to be president. Pelosi is 3rd in line and is a total airhead. I don't see any women senators that would push the button if they had to, or go to war, or retaliate somewhere.

    I think the premise that a woman isn't tough enough is inherently sexist.
