The Republicans actually got closer than the Democrats in putting a woman on the ticket. Elizabeth Dole ran for the nomination once. She didn't do well at all, but I don't even remember the last woman that even tried to make it on the Democrat ballot. This isn't a Republican or Democrat issue. When the American people are ready and when the major parties are ready to field a serious candidate, they'll elect a woman or a minority as president.
