As we see diametric changes in American society and governance; of what value is the Constitution and should it be discarded, and why?
Charles Thanks for your question and interest on my view. Agree my comment was expressed with a too generalist view. Well let me clarify limitation first. Neither I am an expert on political science / constitution nor I am an US citizen so had limited oversight on US constitution or it's evolution. I rather in a general sense know that all law, ethical standard , practices in different countries or cultures evolves over time to meet the specific demand of time and people's desire of the time. Your question stretched me to look into the US constitution a bit , thanks for that as it opened a opportunity of learning for me :) With my novice understanding , I know there are two kind of constitutions practiced by different countries i.e. written constitution and un-written constitution. Interesting thing is (which I am sure you are aware of) , country with written constitution doesn't have everything written in it rather there are lot of practices which are not written but followed as tradition and vice versa for country with unwritten constitution. I am not sure what time frame is good for a country to bring amendments in it's constitution. That being said as I looked into evolution of US constitution to answer your question , I felt it's evolving very slowly compared to the speed of innovation US is driving....some of the landmark amendments are as below 13th amendment abolished slavery in 1865 19th amendment abolished discrimination of voting right on the basis of gender Latest amendment happened in 1992 , which was about compensation of senators and I don't consider it to be major one. Those are changes in written part of US constitution Let's focus on unwritten part , say in 70's US foreign policy used to use it's FOOD as weapon to rule poor countries and US people were fine with it or may be they were not aware of it. I don't feel US is applying similar strategy now a days, even if it uses it like that US citizen will not accept. Could I explain a bit ?

Does Gender Play a Role in Leadership?
In the perception of male dominated society it plays...... There is little attention to the inherent capability .....rather quick conclusion is there that male should be the leader....what I am talking is about the prevailing practice

How well do you think test/exam scores predict a person's future success with a particular subject?
In my country at least test / exam scores are just a predictor of how efficiently one could swallow a subject during her/his class or preparatory stage for exam then later how efficiently one could vomit during the moment of truth of exam time. So it seems to me a certification process of that nothing more nothing less. As many people choose / are bound to choose to be in a profession or area which has a very minimum link with what s/he learned once in class room success depends mostly on something else other than that what s/he scored once in exam. Even if someone remains within her/his subject area even then also score will not help for two reasons which are First any subject is not static so after having high score if one stops learning s/he may become obsolete Secondly even if s/he is updated but don't apply what has learned from practical point view then again it will not work. Last not least interpersonal skill , communication skill , own passion etc seems are more important to be successful.
