VP Candidate Geraldine Ferraro Dies
We lost two female legends (Elizabeth Taylor & Geraldine Ferraro) all in the same week. Ferraro died in Boston Saturday morning and was the first woman to be nominated by a major party as a Vice President candidate.
During 1984, the three-term Congresswoman drew bigger crowds than the Democrat’s Presidential candidate,Walter Mondale. Although the Mondale-Ferraro ticket lost, she set the tone for women in politics.
Ferraro, 75, had been battling cancer the last two years. Her spokesperson said she was surrounded by family when she died at Massachusetts General Hospital.
