Hillary's Historic Run Will Soon Be Pro Forma - An Idea for Sci Fi Writers

Rick Moran has an interesting piece on Pajamas this morning about Hillary Clinton battling on in her campaign because it is historic for women. Whatever one thinks about Hillary, indeed it is.

But it is also ironic. At this moment, there are more women in law school (and medical school) than there are men. Times have clearly changed. In the not too distant future women in the White House and Congress should be pro forma.

So I have an idea for sci fi writers. It’s 2212 and for the first time in a hundred years a MAN is running for the White House, battling all those stereotypes about men (bellicosity, lack of education, etc.).

Hey, maybe I should write it… or Dr. Helen!
