Hillary DePiano Maybe. I would like to think that we aren't that backwards a society that people would object to a female president. She definately seems like the best person for the job, I just worry about those backward minded people who still think women shouldn't have had the vote!

Daniel Tell me something, Hillary.

Do you think we are going to have a Hillary for president?
