Clinton vs. Rice is U.S. best bet for 2016 (Women are better managers, leaders)
MarketWatch ^ | 11-9-12 | Paul B. Farrell

Posted on 11/09/2012 6:15:21 AM PST by ExxonPatrolUs

A few years ago Wall Street Journal columnist Jason Zweig quoted well-known finance professors Brad Barber and Terrance Odean. Their research proved “women’s risk-adjusted returns beat those of men by an average of about one percentage point annually ... women trade less frequently, hold less volatile portfolios.”

Men’s brains think like aggressive hyperactive kids playing video games: “In the testosterone-poisoned sandbox of the male investor, the most important thing is beating the other guy; the second most important: bragging about it. The long term is somebody else’s problem and asking for advice is an admission of inferiority. Worrying about risk is for sissies.

Is it any wonder the male-dominated world of Wall Street has boomed and busted every few years for more than two centuries?”

It’s also easy to understand why America’s future would be safer if women were in leadership roles. As Zweig put it: Women “put safety first ... are less afflicted than men by overconfidence, or the delusion that they know more than they really do. And they’re more likely than men to attribute success to factors outside themselves, like luck or fate.”

America can’t survive as a nation with leaders trapped in an inherent self-destructive tendency, and trapped in denial till it’s too late. The 21st century’s demands women into leadership roles.

Please enough of this cap today. I will argue the opposite is more of the case.

Women and Men want strong men or strong women, not wimps.

Ha ha. Saw the headline and wondered if Dick Morris still had some old books he wanted to sell from the discount bin.

Rice is not a conservative. We will lose.

Hillary is favored by 66% of this country. She’ll win in a walk.

Not Rice. In addition to the fact that she's more liberal than McCain, her close connection to the Bush adm. would end her campaign before it began.

And Chrispy Creme Christie, don't you dare show your face again, and don't even think about running for POTUS. So help me, I would sit out rather than vote for him.

I think we should run Rubio. He is far from perfect, but he's better than any of the currently available alternatives.

In the meantime, Valerie Jarret will be our new Secretary of State.

“Rice is not a conservative. We will lose.”

Exactly. That’s set in stone. If they build it, they won’t come.

A tired old liberal bag for President in 2016? Probably (sigh).

Men and women want strong leaders, not GIRLY men who cry when they’re excited (like Sally Fields at the Oscars), NOT dykey women who will whup the men at their own game. Just solid, real, courageous, MORAL men and women.

Soon the US will be looking, internationally, like our local Episcopal Church - with ONLY wimmen leading, speaking, running things.

Dear stupid columnist, Valerie Jarrett is already the Commander in Chief.

Catherine the Great? Wonderful humanitarian.

Indira Gandhi? Pathetic leader.

Christina Fernandez Kirchner? Destroying Argentina for decades to come.

Evita Peron? Kirchner Part 1

Corey Aquino? Completely ineffective.

Cleopatra? Oversaw the loss of Egypt to the Roman Empire.


The only successful woman? The only one who was a conservative stalwart.

I guess this guy never heard of Carly Fiorina over at HP and how savy and conservative she was....she bought a low margin PC business, 20 some billion to buy compaq, and virtually sunk the firm which will never recover.

Bravo on your pick - Rubio (FLORIDA, HISPANIC, CONSERVATIVE BUT NOT TOO EXTREME)

The “women are better leaders” meme is demonstrably false. Anyone who has worked with or for women knows it isn’t true. Most, the admittedly not all, women leaders tend to see their sphere of leadership as another means to create the drama and personal attention they crave psychologically.

What these folks really mean is, “Women leaders are better because they pursue the kind of policies that women and girly liberal men prefer, namely more welfare, handouts, abortions, free birth control, affirmative action, etc.”

So really, like anything else, it comes down to a question of policy. Does one prefer liberty or tyranny?

No, but the author of the piece made a huge score on the purchase of some AWESOME books at the "Dollar Tree" store!
