The time may be right for Elizabeth Dole to seek the White House, said John Dinan, a politics professor who specializes in voter behavior and polls. One indicator for the country’s readiness is how well women have faired at other levels of government, he said. “It is not as unusual as it once was to have a female governor or senator.” However, the media’s coverage of Dole could make her gender a bigger issue to voters. For instance, Dinan said, the media might focus on her appearance and other topics not typically discussed about male candidates. Dinan is able to address a range of topics concerning the upcoming presidential race, voters and polls. For an interview, call the News Service.
