Recently on a talk radio program, I listened to a commentator remark on Sen. Hillary Clinton's announcement to seek the Democratic nomination for president. He is not the only one giving opinions on the matter. Sen. Clinton's decision to run for president sent shockwaves throughout the country. For the first time in U.S. history, a woman could be the President of the United States. (This is an extraordinary time in U.S. politics, as it is also possible for an African-American or a U.S. Latino to be president as well since Barack Obama has announced he is running and Governor Bill Richardson is considering a presidential bid.)

From radio to television to print, every news outlet covering the election trail whips-up some rhetoric about the female politician and head of state hopeful. The U.S. prides itself on women's rights and equal opportunity. Yet the idea of a woman president seems unrealistic to some vocal media pundits. Sounds like machismo to me. Machismo? Isn't that confined to Latin men with overbearing tempers? Think again.
