The first woman President

It's popular in some circles to identify Bill Clinton as "the first black President." Now hear this -- the black man who is running against the Clinton woman could possibly become "the first woman President." Yes, that's right. You heard it here first (unless you read Bonnie Erbe or someone else who said it before I did).

After quoting her friend saying "Barack is a woman," Erbe writes, "...
metrosexual, pro-choice, pro-health care, anti-poverty Obama is, in every political sense at least, more of a woman than [Hillary] Clinton."

The Democrat's nominee and prospective President "will either be a woman with double-X chromosomes, or one with XY chromosomes who votes more like a woman than most with XX."

The Democratic party seems situated to offer the best of both worlds -- a young handsome charismatic male who is also a woman! I'm not sure whether someone is cooking up a winning strategy, or just cooked up something that they got high on.

I just wonder if people like Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman are turning over in their grave right now?
