America is not ready for a socialist President or a female President, but is America ready for a female Vice President?

Not sure a nation that only exists out of a desire to not pay taxes would ever be "ready" for a Socialist President. However, 2016's popular vote tends to indicate that a female candidate with major party backing could win. Just needs to be the right woman at the right time. Biden's VP pick is going to be perhaps the most important such decision in the history of the country given the presumptive nominee's clear declining health. If he goes for identity politics and taps a Stacey Abrams he'll lose. If he's (or his advisors) are sharp enough to get someone like Amy Klobuchar he may have a shot. Everyone knows Biden's Veep pick will likely end up running things.

I think we could handle a female vice president........but once again........not really impressed with any of the choices.
I wonder if Biden will back off that pledge, and maybe consider Bernie himself.
Of course......if he's reallllllllllllllly intent on picking a woman............
I am sure HILLARY is dusting off her resumé -

STOP trying to present Earth's Lunatic Asylum (the failed rogue "country" once known as the "United States") as if it's the whole continental mass. Do you ever encounter a Brit or German or Frenchman claiming they're country is the whole of Europe? Of course not! Several American countries have already had female presidents, governor generals or prime ministers. Face the fact that E.L.A. is a loserland, clenching with hidebound determination to a moribund past. It moves at a glacial pace on every aspect of life, ever several days late & several dollars short.
"Phil": Glad to see that you're a dedicated DUMBA$$. You're lucky - under my gov't, you & your ilk would be sterilised & permanently disenfranchised.

I am not sure I buy the assumption that America is not ready for a female President. In 2016, the female candidates in the general election got around 67.3 million votes out of 136.8 million votes cast. Meanwhile, in the Republican primary, female candidates got another 50,000. While some of the inability of female candidates to get votes was undoubtedly due to their gender, some of it also had to do with the candidates running. In 2008, almost 60 million out votes were cast for tickets that had women as either the presidential or vice-presidential nominee out of 131 million votes cast. I have trouble buying the theory that there were over 58 million McCain-Clinton voters. So, in all probability, the vast majority of the American people voted for a ticket that included a woman in at least one of the past three elections.
In recent elections, the impact of the VP pick has been very minimal. I think that there will be some voters who would not like the idea of a woman as Vice-President but the number who will vote for Trump or a third-party because the Democrats nominated a woman as VP will be smaller than the number who would vote against the Democrats if they nominated a woman for President. And most of the people who would not vote for a woman for President or VP are unlikely to vote for the Democratic nominee anyway.
So I think that America is more than ready to have a woman as VP. But the pick has to be the right person running on a ticket with a strong presidential candidate at the right time. Previously, women have been nominated by candidates who were already facing an uphill battle at the time that they made the pick. Right now, it looks like it will be a competitive election and some of the numbers actually favor the Democrats. We will see in November if this is the right time for a female VP.

So you are saying America is well behind the times....... many countries have or have had a female lead their country over the last 100yrs and many have done a far better job than their male equivalents

Sure, but since Biden isn't too well physically, are we ready for a female president?
