An African Iron Lady

Looks like Liberia is going to have a female president, which is pretty cool. Hopefully she can do a better job than the "big men" [including Nkrumah and Kenyatta, both listed as "heroes" in the NYT article] who ran the continent into the ground after independence, and won't have to deal with some macho army upstart deciding that he doesn't want his country run by a woman and staging another coup.
