Who should be the first female president: Oprah Winfrey or Nikki Haley?

Hillary Clinton may not have become the first female president, but that doesn't mean it won't happen soon. In honor of Women's History Month, we're asking Tylters to decide which woman you think will make history and become our first female POTUS. Nikki Haley has everything it takes to be president—legislative, executive, and diplomatic experience—but while Oprah Winfrey says she's not running in 2020, it hasn't stopped her fans from dreaming big. What do you think?

Even though she's ruled out a 2020 run, many still believe Oprah would make an excellent president. Brilliant, successful and inspiring, Oprah has everything it takes to run the country, and the election of Donald Trump proves you don't need prior government or military experience to become president.

Oprah also has mass appeal. She could reach across the aisle to find compromise, and speak to the American people in a way they understand. Who better to break the glass ceiling than one of the world's most successful women?

Nikki Haley appears to have all the qualifications of a presidential candidate—including legislative and executive experience, coupled with diplomatic experience at the international level. Having served in the South Carolina state House, followed by a governorship and now ambassador to the UN, Haley has experience at nearly every level of government.

Haley has also managed to dodge the sexist attacks usually thrown at female politicians. Could this conservative from the South have just what it takes to become America's first female president?
