This question, though thoughtful and very current, given the political climate of our country today, is not hard to answer. 

Our world is not God's Kingdom. Jesus said it very plainly (John 18:36). We are also directed to obey civil authority (Matthew 22:21) (Romans 13:1-7).

Yes, according to our Constitution and the Bible, a woman can be elected president of the secularly constituted United States. Whether or not she should be elected is up to all legal voters in our great country. And thank God for that freedom.
