Should A Woman Run For President?

In 1872 a woman ran for US President. Victoria Woodhull was her name (story, story).

She wasn't elected.

Apparently there was discussion in 1960 because the Youth page of the The San Diego Union asked some high school seniors their thoughts.

I'm glad to see that we can peacefully discuss the pressing issues.
