    This course will explore the necessary qualities for a woman to be an outstanding president of the United States. Not surprisingly these same qualities are required for a man to be an outstanding president of the United States. As a part of the discussion, the course will describer and discuss eight women who have been the most influential poltical leaders in the 20th century including Edith Bolling Galt Wilson (second wife of President Woodrow Wilson), Eleanor Roosevelt, Golda Meir, Margaret Thatcher, Angela Merkel, Elizabeth Warren, Carly Fiorina, and Hillary Rodham Clinton. It will attempt to explain why it has taken so long for a woman to be nominated to be U.S. president and why as many women will be U.S. president in the 21st century as men.
