Why do some people feel the need to say something like “we need more women at the table…” or whatever demographic when referring to the political arena?
I, for one, have no interest in a candidate’s demographic when I consider them for my vote. To me, whether they have ovaries or dark skin is irrelevant to the job they will do if elected to office. It’s the ideas that matter, not their physiology. Needless to say, I also hate quotas for the same reason. I have always firmly believed the most qualified person for the position ought to have the highest consideration regardless of their physical characteristics. Am I wrong?
Does anyone out there believe what a person looks like is as important as the ideas they bring to the table?
Does having a certain physical quality make you more or less qualified for political office?
What is the obsession with politicians who point to their physical traits as being a qualification for serving in public office? Tell me your ideas, your ovaries are irrelevant to me!
