Sweden's First Female Prime Minister Quits After 8 HOURS On The Job!

Magdalena Andersson made history on Wednesday when she became Sweden's first-ever female prime minister -- and then made history again when she resigned less than eight hours later.

Andersson, the leader of Sweden's Social Democrats, won a Parliament vote to become the country's 34th prime minister.

However, after the parliament failed to approve a budget for the Social Democrats, Andersson tendered her resignation -- before she'd even had a chance to be sworn in, according to Swedish sources.

"For me, it is about respect," Andersson says. "I do not want to lead a government where there may be grounds to question its legitimacy." If you were to run for office, what position would you go for?
