I amglad to see huge majorities saying it does not matter. People are getting tired of being broken down into groups. The spot should be filled by whoever is best qualified to hold htat office in the eyes of the current President serving at the time. You should not disqualify some just because they do not meet certain physiclal criteria. Hopefully we are passed that nonsense and we judge all people equally based on there skills and qualififcations.

If its true, then its terrible that 3% think it would be a bad idea. Though I don't know how much stock I would put into that number.
