Former President Bill Clinton said Monday he hopes to see a female president in his lifetime.

“I think it will be a good thing for the world as well as for America,” Clinton told an audience at a conference in Beijing, AFP reports.

Clinton called his wife, former Secretary of State and possible 2016 Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, “the ablest public servant I have ever worked with,” but said he doesn’t know if she’ll make a run for the White House or not.

“It’s very interesting for us,” he said. “We still feel young and we still feel healthy.”

Just in 2008 when America with tingling legs rushed to be the first to elect the first incompetent black President, unvetted with sealed records, dubious origin and past. Now feeling it is time to elect the first female President, never mind that if Hillary cant even effectively manage the department like State, how could she manage the whole country. The corrupt media of course will cooperate, suppressing her previous lies, gaffes and record of corruption. All because it is time to have a female President. No wonder this country is in a free fall.

How disappointing,  once again the push to elect a president based on race, gender, or any other supposed "minority" has started. Why focus on qualifications when people like Clinton know how ignorant the average voter is.  They can ram the first female president idea through the media and be assured of a win.  Pathetic American voters....  When the American voter decides they want a great president they will stop looking at who the DNC and GOP push in front of them.  The only way to get a vote in this country is to be filthy rich and backed by lobbyists.  American voters wouldn't even consider a candidate on just character and ability.  We make it a big game, like any other sport where you have to pick a team.  The team owners get richer and more powerful, and America continues on its downward spiral.  We do not value freedom, or any other value this country has been about in the past.  It is all about fame and the almighty dollar.
