Personally, I think our first woman president should be non-theist, or unmarried if she is also christian (or any of the big-3 abrahamic religions). There's just too much chance of submission in religious households.
Really? I have to disagree here. She deserves the question because she has stated that she is submissive to her husband. Do you honestly believe every woman out there who follows a religion is submissive to her husband? That is ridiculous stereotyping. You are the reason it is so hard for a woman to be taken seriously in politics. Your expectations of what a woman needs to be versus what a man needs to be are unrealistic.
