I hardly ever write about politics. Mostly, it's because I'm not all that interested in it and I'm very uninformed. Tonight I was watching the New Hampshire primaries with the Mister (I have no idea why) and something struck me. Why would the nation presume that American women want or need an emotional woman to run the country? I don't want a wishy, washy, emotional woman as my husband's boss. I just don't. I want a strong, thoughtful, upstanding citizen running America. If that person happens to be a woman, then so be it. A person's ability to cry isn't going to make me more inclined to vote for them regardless of their gender. I find the notion insulting. As if tears make a person more appealing to me simply because I'm a woman. It's ludicrous.
