Anticipating Madam President

Front Cover
Lynne Rienner, 2003 - Political Science - 271 pages
Madam President? The question is not if, but rather when the United States will elect a female president - but timing may be the only certainty involved in shattering this most visible glass ceiling in U.S. society. Who will be included in the field of candidates for Madam President, and why? How will she have to position herself for a viable run at the Oval Office? Once in office, will she encounter gender-based biases in her handling of military and foreign affairs? Will Madam President blend seamlessly with the long line of Mr. Presidents - or will the very nature of the presidency be irrevocably changed? Anticipating Madam President's insightful blend of analysis, profiles, and interviews with prominent political women illustrates the realities of women in the upper echelons of public life, as well as the challenges likely to face a woman in one of the world's most powerful political positions.
