Do you think if Hillary becomes the President she will be ignored by Muslims Countries who think?

Women are 2nd class?

And isn't that a risk to our general security?

Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, Suadi Arabia, Syria and Russia, China will just go ahead and laugh at the USA as weak and in time will invade us as they are doing to other weak countries in the world?

She might have more experience than Obama because hubby was president but he never captured Bin-Laden and while Terrorism grew on his watch will terrorism grow on her's?

    The Muslim Countries are a backward lot and their thoughts about women are best left unsaid; besides, they're a joke! Even the Israelis have whupped their butts so many times, now!

    And, Russia is no longer USSR, but a fraction of it. And China has it's own economy to worry about, now.

    What we need to worry about is the growing Islamic immigration here. The Hezbollah have their own office in CA !? And the terrosists have enough and more of their sympathisers in the Muslim ghettos right here.

    That's what we need to worry about.

    Because this is a real Security threat to all of us, right now. Time we got to clearing up our own backyard and take a lesson from UK, which is now being asked to allow the infamous Muslim Shari'a Law there, because of the high Muslim population there.

    Who makes President is, actually, secondary; but, I do have my apprehensions about Barak Hussein Obama, who doesn't really strike me as the best candidate, anyway. All of them aren't exactly the best, anyhow. Wish we had someone really strong and good to choose.

    Peace.

    Foreign countries have already invaded us. What they haven't invaded has been simply handed to them. Do you think those protected areas all over the US are for nature preservation? They are preserved for foreign investors. And, they are using our education system to learn how to literally destroy what's left. Guess where the 9-11 hijackers went to school? And, guess who trained and armed the Taliban?

    Do you think a measly fence is going to keep out illegal and even dangerous immigrants when greedy corporations provide them with the incentives to come over anyway? And, some of our own lawless imaginations are as much a danger to us as anyone else.

    Even our jobs are on Blue Light Special. We just haven't felt the full effects of this all but, we're beginning to. Many people after a long stupor of playing video games and watching American Idol will one day wake up to finally realize that they have become 'world citizens'.

    And terrorism will continue to grow because of our dependency on the oil. Oil is the heart of global economy. As long as many Americans need to continue in filling up those over-sized vehicles to suppress their over-sized insecurities, there will be problems. As long as Americans fail to realize that what we take for granted (like faith...) is taken seriously by others, there will be problems.

    No president can save us. They can only make getting to our destination a little less bumpy.

    Remember Margaret Thatcher?

    Women have held the top position is several governments.

    Condoleeza Rice has already been dealing with the male chauvinists in the Middle east for years.

    She is getting nasty - how does that rate her chances of negotiating peace with anyone. She is so tired she could hardly climb the aircraft steps!!

    Forget the female bit - she just is not up to the job and if (heaven forbid) she gets in, America is in for a big nosedive into further debt and worse wars!!!!

    I wasn't planning on voting for Hillary, but if what you say is true, we should ALL vote for her, and let her show Muslims how strong women can be. Some of them seriously need a lesson in this.

    Go Oba.., no, I mean , Give 'em HeLL Hillary!

    dont get me wrong, Im all for women in power. HOWEVER!! I do not think that a woman should be president at this time.I'LL EXPLAIN...

    In Iran and Iraq, women are looked down upon as the weaker sex. No surprise there, obviously. But since we are in war with the countries of Iran and Iraq, now would not be the best time for women to take power in America. We have enough problems as it stands. But to throw a woman in to a place of power would only encourage the nations of Iran and Iraq to attack again. Im not saying that a woman should never be in power Im just saying that it is a well known fact that men are more LOGICAL. We, as women, tend to make decisions based solely on emotions.

    **I do think it would be hilarious for Hilary to be on her period and out of a fit of hormonal rage to Nuke the entire countries of Iran and Iraq. **

    Since men in these countries think that women are weaker, I am willing to bet that if Hilary became president that they would attack again. simply because they would view her and the fact that she is a woman AS A WEAKNESS INSTEAD OF A LEADER.

    But when I vote I wont be voting for Hilary........She is Democratic and I am REPUBLICAN!!

    Uhh.... Did you miss something? There was an election last week and he was voted in with a massive majority. A little late to be asking silly questions. Have you been in a coma?

    She'll be in charge of a country (if elected) who spends between $500B and $750B per year on the military. Greater than the rest of the world put together.

    No- I don't think she'll be ignored or disrespected. Disliked maybe.
