Women presidents

Drudge reports that ABC is developing a new show featuring a woman president, with Geena Davis starring as the commander-in-chief. Although the country seems ready for a woman president, I'm not sure they're ready for a woman who looks as young as Geena Davis appears to be. though I just googled her age, and I can''t believe she is 49. But in any case, having this show can only help break any lingering stereotypes that women are not cut out for the presidency. Hopefully it is a good show that will break the recent run of bad shows that force me to watch Nick at Nite.

You ought to join Netflix. I hate the reality-show crap on TV as well, and have been entertained by renting DVDs from TV shows from the 70s and 80s when I was too young to appreciate them.

As for the ABC show, I wonder if it got the green light before or after Hillary's favorables/unfavorable ratings started looking like Presidential material.

And I like Geena Davis!

I dont like Geena Davis as President. Memories of Beetlejuice swimming in my head. I'm sure we could find a bevvy of stars who would fit the bill better. Plus Geena Davis always looked like white trash to me. I like to imagine that political women have a leadership qualities. Whatever that means. What about a BLACK woman president? Dont forget, Condy hasnt ruled it out entirely, whereas Clinton "has". I'd use Halle Berry, she looks like Condy and she has the same kick-ass first and take names later attitude. Plus Condy is a Republican. Cant get any better than that! If I had to pick a white female actress for President, I'd probably go with Nicole Kidman, because she has that quiet dignity, and has proven she can adapt to different roles, with her latest slate of movies.

Yea blogging about something that is a waste of time instead of doing my Property work! The irony is thick.

I doubt she'll play a Republican president since Hollywood is a bastion of liberalism.

Martin Sheen = best president of them all.

I don't see myself ever voting for a woman for President. Ever.

I hope the show is a comedy and some how sublimally coaxes others from doing so as well. And to those who disagree w/ me - i politely invite you to come down on me. Email me at If you are a regular reader of Mr. Specs blog you know I welcome the debate and will come right back at you (even though I may sound like an idiot in the long run).

Random Comment:
Hmm...some people said that people voted the way that they did in the last election as a statement against the media. maybe they will do that again if this show hits the air and ...gulp... hilary -don't forget the rodem- clinton runs in 2008 (or even if the robot Condoleeza Rice runs).

I concur in part, and dissent in part with POYS in re: Martin Sheen. I certainly dont agree with his politics. He's a very good actor though. West Wing: Best political drama out there. Nuff said.
