A Different Look At The Approach Of Being President

1140 words - 5 pages

Why should a woman be President of the United States? Well, the question should really be, “Why Not? Why has a woman not been elected president?” Women are capable to handle the assignments, duties, responsibilities, and obligations that a president must deal with. They have the same functioning body and mind as men, and perhaps a better moral compass. This paper will list some of the reasons why a woman should, one day, become President of the United States. The argument will also be backed by interviews and literature from other authors, and women who have researched and written about this topic.
It is tough to say a woman should be president and not give any legitimate reasons to back up why it would be a suitable selection. However, there are multiple reasons why a woman for president would make a great candidate. For one, we would have fought fewer wars in our nation’s past if a woman had been Commander-in-Chief. Women are less aggressive when it comes to physical violence. They will avoid the threatening warfare if given a decision. Instead of letting problems turn into physical violence, they will find an alternative resolution that will end with both parties feeling settled. This fact alone provides support to the belief that they would have avoided various conflicts that have led to some of the most vicious wars that our country has ever seen. Men tend to be more impulsive to “act like a man,” when it comes to physical violence, and they will give into pressure when pushed by another man. Men feel the need to “protect,” but many of them feel that through physical means it is achieved. This kind of mentality is also why our country has experienced some of the financial highs that it has, as well as the lows.
However, a woman already holding a position of power doesn’t agree with this feeling. Republican Congress Representative, Michele Bachmann, in an interview with the Wall Street Journal stated, “I think there was a cachet about having an African-American president because of guilt…people don’t hold guilt for a woman.” She went on to say, “I don’t think there is a pent-up desire for a woman in the oval office” (Bachman). Bachmann made these claims as an answer to a question comparing the call for an African-American president as opposed to a woman president. She states her opinions as there is no guilt for women and what they have went through in our country’s history, and no one shares a desire for a woman to become president. There is some sort of truth in this statement that there is no desire for a woman president, but that does not change the facts and argument that a woman would make an outstanding leader. At the state our country was in, and looking at the incumbent president, there was some pressure for an African-American president to be elected and a lot of people got on board for Obama. It is highly believable that there would not be the same support for a woman candidate, white or black.
Another reason a woman would...
