When? Ummm... how about back in 2008! Senator Hilary Clinton ran for President 5 years ago. And way back in 1984 (otherwise known as "ancient history" to some of you) Walter Mondale ran for President with a woman named Geraldine Ferraro as his VP running mate. But they lost. Try to pay better attention.
Well women have been running for years. Hillary almost became the nominee in 2008. If the best candidate is a woman, you vote for her; Maggie Thatcher was exceptional, and an inspiration to all of Britain in times of crisis. Women can do every bit as well as men, the job does not require exceptional upper body strength.

I would not, not a personal bias, but other countries would look down on us, and they would start trouble thinking that our woman leader couldn't make intelligent decisions. Until we clear this prejudice, it isn't a good idea, especially since we have people in our own country who think that you women are less than equal. Until a majority of countries come to grips with the fact that people are equal no matter the sex, race, or religious beliefs, we cannot afford to be the first country to have a leader who does not belong to a respected group in most if not all categories. If we did elect a female leader, she would have to be respected and feared undoubtedly, like Oprah, or Martha Stewart, also she would have to have a normal, sleazbag of a politician as a vise president, to assure people that if things go wrong, we can rely on the usual idiots to "save" us, while they avoid the issue. Alas, my opinion does not really matter, I'm afraid, because I'm three years to young to vote, so my answer is pretty much worthless....
