If women weren't loyal to men then I can't imagine who 
they should support.  Loyalty is the only way a leader 
is able to build his alliance so that social justice 
can be pursued.  Dividing the sexes is one certain way 
to polarize a country's thinking.  Males are the ones 
who make great statesmen while women allow them to 
reach their potential.  That old adage: "behind every 
successful man is a woman" holds true in most 
instances.  Very rarely does a male reach his apogee 
without assistance from a gentler being.

The original thrust of this thread was polarity between 
Dem's and GOP and my suggestion was that neither 
Presidential candidate was that extreme.  I will 
continue with this belief until someone can prove 
otherwise.  I do hope the proof comes without political
