Scientists took a drubbing in a straw poll that asked the public to decide which of 20 prominent women were most qualified to be U.S. president (Science, 2 October 1998, p. 21). Neither cardiologist Bernadine Healy nor psychologist Judith Rodin made the top five, although physician-astronaut Mae Jamison was a runner-up. Prominent winners included Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Dole.
