Do you think the country is ready to elect a woman as president?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on February 8, 2006
“I wish it was, but in reality we probably won’t - at least not in the next election. I think there would have to be a woman vice president first.”
“It’s really just a matter of time. If (Hillary) Clinton runs, I think she might just be able to pull it off. It depends a lot on the international climate of the election year.”
“If it’s the right woman, like Hillary Clinton.”
“I would say yes. Many developed countries have had women leaders, and we’re supposed to be one of the most progressive, but we haven’t had one yet. I think it’s past time.”
