Growing up as a girl you are raised completely different than if you were a boy. Girls are taught to be what society considers the perfect girl.

Is personality the most important factor in choosing a presidential candidate ? At first, I thought the obvious answer was no.   In a perfect world, the presidential candidates are all good people, in which their demeanor is not something of scrutiny, and the focus can be solely on their bel...
