Can It Be Done?
The first presidential election I can remember was the 1984 race (or lack thereof) between Reagan/Bush and Mondale/Ferraro. I didn’t really understand politics and what the candidates stood for, but I vividly remember being intrigued by the presence of a female among the candidates.
As a little girl with a leadership gift brewing in my heart, having an example on the political stage was very exciting to me. But in the 28 years that have passed, very few women have attempted that leadership pinnacle.
Kind of seems like we haven’t made much progress.
I have to admit that my heart still longs to see some amazing women leaders take center stage.
With Michele Bachmann’s recent announcement to run for President in 2012, it’s got me wondering if it can be done? Is it possible for a female to be elected to the office of President of the United States?
I’d love to hear what you think.
Do you think we’ll see a female president in our lifetime?
Why or why not?
