India Elects First Female President
NEW DELHI — India elected Pratibha Patil as the country's first female president Saturday in a vote seen as a victory for the hundreds of millions of Indian women who contend with widespread discrimination.
Patil received 65.82 percent of the votes cast by national lawmakers and state legislators, said Election Commission head P.D.T. Achary. She had been widely expected to win.
Wonder if there was heavy reporting of her fashion choices?
Scary to think India may be be more enlightened that the U.S.
