Ms. President?

It is unclear if US will have its first woman president in 2009, But India is all set to have the first woman president in a couple of months. I haven't it heard of Ms. Prathiba Patil until today, nevertheless I welcome her nomination.

I would have preferred to see Dr. Abdul Kalam renominated for one more term but with that not happening, Ms. Patil seems to be a better choice over few others like Shivraj Patil, Pranab Mukherjee, Sushilkumar Shinde or Karan Singh who were in the fray.
