Grrrl Presidents

Both Chile and Liberia have recently elected female presidents. You know, for a country that considers itself a forward-thinking leader of the free world, the U.S. hasn't mixed things up much in the presidency, considering we're 42 for 42 for old white dudes. That stat reminds me of a bit I saw on Conan one night- he and Chris Rock were doing the In The Year 2000 skit, and Chris Rock says "In the year 2000, the United States will elect a black man as President. Oh, wait, that's in the year 10,000."

who wrote a comment and deleted it? mysterious....I bet it was something insulting and the author thougth the better of posting it. Either that or someone was going to say "43 presidents, you idiot!" and then realized that Grover Cleveland was president twice. DCoE fact checkers work hard.
