No - she'd have had to be president to prove that. She wasn't.
Try to keep up.
That's the first thing I thought of, bet there are a lot of members actually able to keep up, we're not alone. I don't know if who you're replying to is able though. 🤡

People were scared shitless of the chance she would be President.That's why she lost.Try to keep up.
She did win the popular vote, and the only idiots scared shitless were trump mesmerized "conservatives", now known as the cult.

I would agree, and this is despite noting that VPs are supposed to be background figures; there just isn't much to point to, but to be fair, Biden's presidency is still young. Beyond this, Harris was laughably weak in the primaries besides being a flip-flopper there, and frankly the less said about her very dubious, checkered and frankly down right concerning career as Cali's attorney general the better.

Anyone who would like to see her as the presumptive Dem nominee is either seeking disappointment (whether in the primary or general election), has set their bar far too low, or both.
On point. I agree completely.

Additional question:

If a Lady - which Lady?
That’s the real question. I would vote for a woman without reservation but I wouldn’t vote for a woman just because she’s a woman.

From the comments I have read so far on this topic, it is painfully obvious what the issue is.

A woman President is fine, as long as she is Conservative, a Republican, and a Trump bootlicker.

Now if a woman happens to have dark skin, or is a Liberal, or a a Biden bootlicker, she clearly is not qualified.

I mean come on people! Any one with any common sense can see what the issues are with a female President. It isn't her gender that is the issue at all!!

The issue is the bootlicking fetish, right? Did I get it? What do I win?

Yes. And I hope that she is either Nikki Haley or Amy Klobuchar in that order of preference, based on competency, character and vision.
She supports the former guy. That's a no-go in my book.

Sen. Klobuchar would be an outstanding pick.

A 'lady' will be president...probably sooner than later. That lady will be a vapid, unlikable, empty suit that was so worthless as a political candidate that she couldnt draw even a single delegate and came in 9th in a field of 9 in the democrat party primary.

Wont THAT be fun.

No.

Women are not generally speaking as capable as men to be effective leaders. There are exceptions like Margaret Thatcher, but even then the only real exceptions also understand women are on average not as capable of leaders, which is why the handful of good female world leaders like thatcher are despised by feminists

Another example:

Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo to run for French president​

Socialist says she’ll campaign to build ‘a fairer France.’


The next presidential election takes place in April and will involve two rounds of voting if no candidate wins an absolute majority in the first round.

President Emmanuel Macron has not yet announced he will run for a second term but is widely expected to do so.

According to POLITICO’s Poll of Polls of first-round voting intention, Macron leads the pack of potential candidates on 24 percent, one point ahead of far-right leader Marine Le Pen.

Well, assuming America survives as a nation til 2024, I expect that will likely be the last election held under our current Constitution.

We'll be about $50 trillion in debt in 2025... pushing $70 trillion by 2028. Medicare becomes insolvent in 2025...

If you leftwing loons want a broad presiding over the collapse. I think you only have one more shot at it ;)

Take cheer though... after all the dust settles, it is likely that your beloved Marxist in Chief, Barack Obama will be back on the throne.

No more Constitution, no more term limits.

Yes, it is really so. There’s a reason why women leaders were very rare until recently when western society became rich and decadent enough to cruise on past success. So now it’s a luxury of affirmative action.

I don’t really see the evidence where female political leaders are even really that effective. What normally happens is that they take an office and things get worse and then any criticism will be called “sexism” and they’ll get hailed for having a vag.

Good golly. I thought Catholics were taught to love, admire and respect women as equals, not make blanket, misogynistic, derogatory statements about women.

So it's racism that is why her **** ups get more airtime compared to a White Male?

Your Race Card has been declined. Please choose another form of debate.
Wrong card game. Try sexism and/or misogyny. You don't need color necessarily for either of those to come into play.

Still waiting however for those teachings to impel them to treat women as equals within the church itself. That still has yet to happen.
