Female bosses - good, bad, ugly?

Have you worked for a hard-driving female boss? How has that affected your work life?
Today, a few of us women at my office debated the subject. We argued about whether women have to be bitchy to be a boss. We also argued about whether a woman who sacrifices everything for the corner office is our ideal candidate for a boss. (A resounding no!) Personally, I want to be led by someone committed to her job and willing to spend the time it takes to be a good manager. But I also want her to have respect for her employees personal lives. One of my colleagues is convinced women bosses prefer mentoring male employees and are more concerned about their work/life balance.
My co-worker's comment: "Some women are quick to throw other women under the bus.''

Why is this? I recently started a blog about my female boss...I've had several female bosses and yes, while there are great moments I do have to say the majority of the time you're wondering why we're acting as if we are each other's worse enemies! Are you a female boss? Do you deal with one constantly? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
