Will we see a U.S female President in the next 50 years?

How much of an impact would it make if there was a female as the President of the United States?
Thoughts and explanations?
There has also been a marked increase in women entering politics and holding positions of high office in the past 25 years or so. I doubt it will be ever a 50/50 m/f split but maybe oneday females will make up a third or so. The more entering the more probable it will happen.
I'd like to add two more questions to this thread;
1) Would you like see a female become U.S President in your lifetime?
2) Do you think a female as U.S President can be successful?
I wont answer the question directly. Considering that politics is a male dominated world of influential and powerful people it takes a certain type of female (as it does male) to make it to the top.
If you look at those who have reached the top f the game; Thatcher, Merkel, Tymoshenko, Clinton, Rice, McAeese etc... they are all very resiliant, hardlined and slightly stubborn. They all handle the pressure in a unique manner that in some respects gets the job done. I often feel that the goal posts are a little clearer with the focus and drive to deliver on them even more so. I think a female leader can often get jobs done where few men fear to tread.
And yeah I think we will see a female president in the near future. Maybe not immediately but the country is obviously open to the idea based on previous candidates that have done well. By 2020 I think it's a guarantee.
I just hope the country wants to see a great president first and a woman president second. I would hate to see people voting for somebody just because "Now is our chance to have the first woman president!"
