Geraldine Ferraro dead at 75
Geraldine Ferraro is dead.
The first woman to stand for office as Vice President has died at the age of 75, succumbing to Blood Cancer. Her 1984 campaign, together with Democrat Presidential Candidate Walter Mondale made history by her inclusion on the ticket.
It also made history by the landslide loss of 49 states. There was some feeling that the ticket might have done much better, were she in the top spot.
In the November elections, Fox News interviewed Geraldine Ferraro and Sarah Palin together, and then they asked questions of one another. Click on this link to watch the interview:
Joint/Mutual Interview Ferraro Palin
It is interesting to see the rapport between the two, and the touching moment in which Palin thanks Ferraro for paving the way for women to run for president and vice president.
