Geraldine Ferraro First Woman VP Candidate Has Died

Geraldine Ferraro, the first woman of a major political party ever to run for Vice President of the United States, has died of complications from blood cancer. She was 75.

I had an opportunity to meet Ms. Ferraro in 1984 while she was stumping for her running mate and Presidential candidate Walter Mondale on Long Island at my Alma Mata, Adelphi University. I found her to be extremely intelligent on both domestic and foreign affairs. She was also quite witty. Mondale and Ferraro went on to lose the 1984 election to then President Ronald Regan and Vice President George H.W. Bush by one of the widest margins in American history.
