 When do you think the first female President shall be?

 I am certain there will be one in my life time. I predict there shall be one in less than thirty years.

I expect there will be a female president very shortly in the near future probably the next president after obama.

Analagous to Obama, she'll need to be the candidate who's female not the female candidate. We've got a number of good female governors and senators out there.

I am fairly confident that a woman will sit in the Oval Office before we elect our 50th president or she will be the 50th president.

She will be the 46th president of the United States. What I think will happen, Obama will win re-election. In 2016 Republcans retake the white house, only to lose it in 2020. So about 11 years from now.

Not in the next decade, barring a superstar candidate being elected governor in 2010. The only current female governor or Senator that I can see running a credible campaign for president is Kathleen Sebelius, and that would be a longshot by 2016. But who knows what will happen over the next few cycles.

Not in the next 40 years.

If Hillary Clinton, with her high profile and expertise on the issues could not win in 2008, it will be a long while before any other female candidate will be able to launch a truly serious candidacy for the Presidency.

Honestly, I think a woman will be on at least the Democratic ticket in 2016, either as the presidential nominee or vice presidential nominee.

There are going to be 16-18 women in the U.S. Senate next year (depending on replacements for Hillary Clinton and Obama). There were 13 at the start of Bush's term and 6 at the start of Clinton's term. By 2016, there will probably be 4-5 more women in the U.S. Senate. There will probably also be at least a handful more women governors.

And if the woman in question is the running mate, the pool expands a bit more to possibly include members of Congress or cabinet members.

I think the pressure, particularly for the Democrats, will be VERY strong in '16 to place a woman on the ticket, given Hillary's near-miss this year and Sarah Palin's VP candidacy. There's a sense that it will be a woman's "turn."

Clinton's a possibility, although I wouldn't bet on it; she probably serves out this term as Obama's Secretary of State, then retires or takes another cabinet post like Defense if he wins reelection. Then she probably joins a think-tank or non-profit but leaves elective office.

I think Lisa Madigan -- current IL AG -- is a possibility if she becomes IL Governor in two years and if she has a successful term. If Kirsten Gilibrand replaces Hillary Clinton, she also has a very good shot.

One name worth mentioning is Michigan's current Secretary of State, Terri Lynn Land, who may run for Governor in 2010 and stands a good chance of winning both the primary and general election. If she runs, wins, and proves to be competent, she may be a possibility for 2016/2020.

Just because Clinton came close this year doesn't mean the first female president has to be a Democrats. 

If Kay Bailey Hutchinson becomes the governor of Texas in 2010 (which seems highly likely) I think she'll be a top candidate for the GOP in 2016 assuming they lose in 2012.

I like Hutchison, but she'll be 73 in 2016.

Oh, I didn't realize that.  That could certainly hold her back.  Then again, McCain is 72 and women generally live longer than men.

Why?

Clinton wasn't a female candidate. She was a candidate who was female. That's like saying North Carolinians can't win because Edwars lost.

Just for shizzles and giggles...in the next 3-5 cycles we could see:

D:
Governor Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin
Senator Sebelius
Senator Sink
Secretary/Senator Napolitano
Senator (Caroline) Kennedy

VP's also include Cantwell, Madigan, Sink, Hagan, Shaheen

R:
Governor Hutchinson
Governor Lingle
Governor Rell

Senator Collins would be a smart VP, if she werent pro-choice

Blanche Lincoln, Mary Landrieu, Kay Hagan are all names that come to mind immediately. I suppose Kay Bailey Hutchinson could run in a few years. Also, whoever Max Sandlin's wife is, cause the husband can tap her in to all that Texas trial lawyer money

Yeah I think I women has less of a timetable to run.  People vote a lot on appearance and they don't want to watch a 73 year old woman age to 77.  Hell, people were wondering about Hillary aging and she's about 60
