Is Obama the first woman president?

Don’t look at me. Others are saying it. And I’m not sure it’s any compliment to women. The thing is, the qualities they’re pointing to that supposedly make him “feminine” – “he would rather talk than fight” – are not necessarily traits that make a great leader (at least not when present in excess).

I think (fear) that people are sensing weakness in the President and they’re defining that weakness (wrongly) as feminine.
