Geraldine Ferraro passed away today at the age of 75 of blood cancer (diagnosed in the 90’s). Here is what Sarah Palin had to say on her Facebook Page:
My family and I would like to express our sincere condolences to the family of Geraldine Ferraro. When I had the honor of working alongside Geraldine on election night last year, we both discussed the role of women in politics and our excited expectation that someday that final glass ceiling would be shattered by the election of a woman president. She was an amazing woman who dedicated her life to public service as a teacher, prosecutor, Congresswoman, and Vice Presidential candidate. She broke one huge barrier and then went on to break many more. The world will miss her. May she rest in peace and may her example of hard work and dedication to America continue to inspire all women.
– Sarah Palin
Gracious words from a gracious woman.
I always enjoyed seeing Geraldine and Sarah together on TV news segments. Despite coming from different ends of the political spectrum, they had much in common and they showed one another courtesy and respect. Although I couldn’t support many of the things Ms. Ferraro supported, I came to respect her a great deal because of how she was with Ms. Palin. A lady with class is what I saw.
My condolences to her family.
