So, according to what we’ve looked into, a woman can be Constitutionally elected to the position of President of the United States. The reason that she can is because of what happened in the Equal Right’s Amendment. At that stage, women and people of color were able to be declared full citizens, and that made it possible for a woman to hold the office.
However, the other restrictions still apply. She must be a natural born citizen, or around when the Constitution was adopted. She must be over the age of 35. She must be chosen by the majority of the votes of the Electoral College.
In today’s world, she must also win the nomination from one of the two “ruling parties.” Though I hope that this will one day come to an end.
But now that we’ve answered the question of can she be president, there’s still one issue left to discuss. Not should a woman be President– although this is an interesting one so far as Scripture goes. I don’t tend to believe that Biblical injunctions against woman leaders applies to the secular realm. I do believe that it applies to the family– so I don’t know how a married woman can be a leader and still be in submission to her husband!
But the government of the United States is not a church. She doesn’t have to keep silent, and the leader does not have to be a man. Whether it is better for a man to be it is still an open question to me. Also, the whole question needs to be framed in context with the other nominees. There are some women that I would personally prefer over some men.
However, being a Christian, I believe that the last qualification for President must be that the person is the right person for the right time. That can only be decided by God above.
