	Once again, regardless of your intent, your messages sounded as if you
were advocating ABSOLUTELY women should not be in positions of political
authority. And, once again, that may very well not be what you meant,
and, according to you, it is definitely not what you meant. I personally
think that it was a matter of lack of clarity in language.
