Wow: Would you vote for a woman for president? American attitudes since 1937
In January of 1937, the Gallup Poll, then in its second year of existence, posed this question: “Would you vote for a woman for president if she was qualified in every other respect?” Sixty-four pe…

Charles, as a democratic socialist, I can assure you there is nothing socialist about Clinton. She is as randian as they come.

Calling her a socialist just means you want to feel good about voting for Trump..

Such irony here. Me and my Ms., were actually in line to see Groundhog Day, and by mere chance ahead of us in line was our political leader. So, we struck up a conversion with our then Provincial Premier who was taking his two daughters to see this movie. We just happened to live in Toronto and were attending Groundhog Day at our neighbourhood theatre. Just remembering this movie makes me think this is that day, again. lol:-)

Running for president should involve an understanding of the U.S. Constitution and the ideals this nation was founded upon.

Love Austin, but they'd be hard pressed to outdo Copenhagen.

Anyone else wondering if the uptick in incidents of domestic terrorism may be in part a product of unusually provocative campaign rhetoric?

Good point +Sheril Kirshenbaum​. Why wouldn't extreme rhetoric from politicians embolden those who were suppressing their own extremist thoughts...... "My thoughts aren't acceptable, but it must now be time"

A wall between the U.S. and Mexico won't keep immigrants out and climate change will intensify pressure northward.

The idea of stopping immigrants can not grant for sure way of strength security

We have had two great experiences with Bill and Charlie's. In the first instance, they replaced a tire without trying to make us buy a set of two or four when it wasn't necessary. The second time, they were able to reset my dashboard and didn't charge us a fee. These guys are honest and it's been a better experience than any other place we've taken our Subaru. Everyone in service was helpful, informative, and very nice. As a woman, I also appreciate that no one seems to speak down to me, as has been my experience at other car service shops. If we could give them 6 stars, we would. Go here.
