The Tories are about to elect a female leader and hence female PM in the UK, Hillary looks set to win in the US and Angela is still head honcho in Germany. So will this make any difference to anything? Three of the most powerful, prosperous nations on Earth will be led by women. Is that something to be celebrated? just a footnote in history? an unusual aberration? a sign of liberal values triumphing? Will it make any difference to their foreign policy? Will they have a better relationship just because they are women? Will it make a blind bit of difference?

Bloody SLW's, come the revolution they will all be put up agasint dumpsters and shot.

As to your serious point.

No it will make no difference (and in two cases have already had female leaders anyway).

As to it being a sign of something, maybe. But only in America, and only then that (quite frankly) the right have so lost the plot they cannot field an acceptable candidate.

That's what it means.
Or it means that we have confirmed it, just as we do every two years.

Policies and results are more important than the sex of the politicians.

Because they are erratic and can't think straight because of their hormones. Male testosterone has no bad side effects. Women elected president should undergo testosterone therapy.

Yah, cuz we've never had President's before who felt that they should be exempt from investigation by Congressional Investigators, or who felt free to redefine entire sections of the Geneva Convention on torture, or who were fine with carrying out a black war against a foreign nation despite an explicit prohibition from Congress.

Yep, if Hilary becomes President, just toss it in folks.

The email scandal.

Worse than Iran-Contra, Watergate, and the Iraq War; combined.

You'd say that people would have learned something from fifteen years of Margaret Thatcher

I don't really think that a politician's gender is a defining trait in the way he or she practices politics.

And FWIW, I really doubt that Clinton will be leading the US this november. Wouldn't Obama stay in office until a new president is inaugurated?
