A recent survey asked if the country is ready for a female president. More than 60 percent of people surveyed think the country is prepared for a woman in the Oval Office. In the Hearst newspaper poll, an even greater proportion say they're willing to vote for a woman, whether the country is ready or not. In the survey, many Democrats said Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton should run. Republicans tended to encourage Condoleezza Rice, or Elizabeth Dole.
