Geraldine Ferraro, the first American woman to run for national office on a major political party’s ticket, died Saturday at 75.
Ferraro was the Democratic vice-presidential nominee in 1984. Her family said she died at Massachusetts General Hospital in the eastern city of Boston of complications from multiple myeloma, a blood cancer that she had battled for 12 years.
Ferraro was the running mate of presidential nominee Walter Mondale on the Democratic Party’s ticket in 1984, when former president Ronald Reagan was running for a second term in the White House. more>>
I think we are being hard on her. I really don’t think Geraldine Ferraro is a racist. I think it is funny how touchy people on the “Left” are. Pretty much why I’m not a Democrat in a nutshell. I feel that while racism still exists against Black folks, I think today there is just as much going to white folks. The fact that Obama is so loved is evidence that America wants racism to be over. If Obama were running on the Republican ticket with Pro American, Pro War Support and Anti Tax values. I would vote for him. Haitians, Dominicans, Mexicans, there is plenty of hatred for them, but I don’t think there is a lot of prejudice going against U.S. Black folk today. Geraldine had the gumption to call a spade a spade. It was her job to follow the voting patterns. I guess I wouldn’t be able to go into politics because I would be like Ferraro. (I always liked her) so I’m not laughing at her. I’m sad for the Democrats for being so nasty, and most of America feels likewise.

I hope you don’t think I’m being obtuse, but I really think this is the last straw for the Democrats
