Can a Woman Be Vice-President?

There has been a lot of talk about whether a woman (e.g., Sarah Palin) can biblically be, say, vice-president or president of the United States. As a broader question, according to the Bible, what positions can women fill in the political and social spheres?

This article by Dr. Kevin Bauder of Central Baptist Theological Seminary summarizes the position that a woman can biblically hold political office. This is a summary, and there are certainly many other aspects of the issue that could be discussed here...but it is a good summary. Others will, in good and sincere conscience, disagree; but I think Bauder speaks well to this issue.
