Gender of U.S. president needs constitutional amendment update

Neither Hillary Clinton nor any woman can become U.S. president, unless the Constitution is amended. Intellectual Copyright  ©12/17/2015

Although to my knowledge no one has mentioned this before, our Founding Fathers did not intend on Hillary Clinton or any woman, for that matter, to become president of the United States.

According to two personal pronouns used in Article 2, Section 1, 
"The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice President, chosen for the same Term, be elected, as follows..."

Although the Constitution talks about the President being a "Person", it never uses the words she or her. At that time the Constitution was written, of course, women also did not have voting rights.

"The President shall, at stated Times, receive for his Services, a Compensation, which shall neither be increased nor diminished during the Period for which he shall have been elected, and he shall not receive within that Period any other Emolument from the United States, or any of them.

"Before he enters on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:—'I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.' "

In order to amend the Constitution, 
"In the U.S. Congress, both the House of Representatives and the Senate approve by a two-thirds supermajority vote, a joint resolution amending the Constitution. Amendments so approved do not require the signature of the President of the United States and are sent directly to the states for ratification."

Team Hillary, it seems you've got some work to do! Let me know if you have any information on this topic.
