I don't really see what the big surprise is. For years now, women have seemed more serious and trustworthy than men in the public's opinion. It started with all the himbos in advertising over 10 years ago, and the role reversal of gender perception has only continued since then. Men are petty and cheat and lie, sleep with their interns (mind you, I'm still a total Clinton apologist) and take us into foolhardy wars. Note that the old saying, "For every beautiful woman, there's a man who's tired of fucking her" is never heard the other way around.
So if women are hoarding all the credibility points in the country these days, how long until this reaches the good and logical conclusion -- Madame President?
