It makes me sad to see Barbara Walters retire from TV. My dad and I met her and Geraldine Ferraro when Ferraro was running for Vice President and we were interviewed on TV by the two of them. I was about 6 or 7 years old. I'll never forget how in awe I was of her. I cared nothing for Geraldine, the potential Vice President of the United States! I just wanted to talk to Barbara Walters! What an icon.

Congratulations to Riverrun International Film Festival for a great festival this year. Even with busy schedules, we got out to five wonderful movies. Especially recommended are Geraldine Ferraro: Paving the Way (available on Showtime) and the David Lean/Noel Coward technicolor film This Happy Breed. Film lovers plan your trip to Winston-Salem next spring.
In honor of Women History Month: I salute Geraldine Ferraro, on her historic nomination as the Democratic Vice-Presidential candidate selected by Walter Mondale to be his running mate in the 1984 election. She faced unprecedented scrutiny as both the first woman and the first Italian American to appear on either major party’s presidential ticket. Ferraro’s humor and thick skin served her well, but could not ultimately change the outcome of the race. After the historic but unsuccessful run, she remained an active and visible supporter of progressive and women’s causes. Ferraro later practiced law, offered her distinctively feisty political commentary on Fox News and served as a US ambassador during the Clinton administration. Bill and Hillary Clinton perhaps captured her best in a joint statement released at her death in 2011: “One of a kind—tough, brilliant, and never afraid to speak her mind or stand up for what she believed in—a New York icon and a true American original.”

Can anyone confirm that Girl Scouts USA recommends pro-abortion role models/organizations such as Betty Friedan, Gloria Steinem, Geraldine Ferraro, Hillary Clinton, Amnesty International, Population Council, ACLU, National Organization For Women (NOW), Planned Parenthood, and others?

Tonight we come together bound by our faith in a mighty God, with genuine respect and love for our country, and inheriting the legacy of a great Party, the Democratic Party, which is the best hope for redirecting our nation on a more humane, just, and peaceful course. This is not a perfect party. We are not a perfect people. Yet, we are called to a perfect mission. Our mission: to feed the hungry; to clothe the naked; to house the homeless; to teach the illiterate; to provide jobs for the jobless; and to choose the human race over the nuclear race. We are gathered here this week to nominate a candidate and adopt a platform which will expand, unify, direct, and inspire our Party and the nation to fulfill this mission. My constituency is the desperate, the damned, the disinherited, the disrespected, and the despised. They are restless and seek relief. They have voted in record numbers. They have invested the faith, hope, and trust that they have in us. The Democratic Party must send them a signal that we ca ...

A question: I do not watch "Fox News", or any American peer... Is there some evidence of them intentionally altering any audio or video that I'm unaware of? Have they been presenting their opinions as indisputable facts?

I prefer international news sources such as Der SPIEGEL ONLINE myself, but I am curious as to the "lies" I keep hearing people say that they tell...

RIP Joan Mondale. I remember the hard work we did the first national campaign I worked on in 1984, that would have made her our First Lady, her husband Walter, President. And a campaign that had Geraldine Ferraro, our countries first female on a Presidential ticket as his running mate.
I'm sorry, but I have to wonder what Geraldine Ferraro (who actually was a respectable Democrat) and Sarah Palin think of Obama's comments regarding gender inequality. I also wonder how Oprah Winfrey and Hilary Clinton can still support that clown. The laws he proposes... THEY ALREADY EXIST!!!

GIFTS FOR MEGAN FROM THE WORLD In 1984, at the age of four, my daughter got totally excited about Geraldine Ferraro running for Vice President of the United States—“the first woman ever,” she would tell everyone. That Halloween we made a costume that represented Ferraro (in an abstract sort of way) and she went trick or treating in our neighborhood (Hillcrest), and was greeted with smiles and extra candy. That year while I was wrapping her Xmas gifts, I thought about adding a dimension to her packages; rather than have them all read from, “Mommy, Daddy and Santa,” I thought we should expand the list of Megan’s “gift givers. “ That year she received a gift from Geraldine Ferraro (even though she had lost the race), Al Shankar, Mother Jones and Che Guevara. If she did not already know who the “gift giver” was she would look them up in the dictionary. The next year she received gifts from yet another group of activists, artists and progressive politicians. In 1994 she received her first . ...
1959-12-15 Donna Brazile was born on this date in 1959. She is an African American author, educator, and political activist and strategist affiliated with the Democratic Party. Brazile was born in New Orleans, LA, to Lionele and Jean Brazile, the third of nine children. She became interested in politics when at age nine a local candidate for office promised to build a neighborhood playground. After graduating from Louisiana State University, Brazile worked for several advocacy groups in Washington, D.C., and was instrumental in the successful campaign to make Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday a federal holiday. Brazile has worked on several presidential campaigns for Democratic candidates, including the Jimmy Carter-Walter Mondale ticket in 1976 and 1980, the Rev. Jesse Jackson's first historic bid for the presidency in 1984, Walter Mondale-Geraldine Ferraro ticket in 1984, and for U.S. Representative Richard Gephardt in the 1988 Democratic primary.

It was a big news day yesterday: President Obama arrived in Africa. Aaron Hernandez was charged with murder. And the Supreme Court, in effect, put its stamp of approval on same-sex marriage. But we can’t forget one other big story: CNN announced it was bringing back Crossfire. Good! Too bad they cancelled it, in the first place. It won’t be exactly the same. No Bob Novak or Geraldine Ferraro. They’re dead. No Pat Buchanan, Tucker Carlson, Mary Matalin, or Bill Press, either. But a new team of co-hosts: S.E. Cupp and Newt Gingrich on the right; Van Jones and Stephanie Cutter on the left. We don’t know for sure, but it probably won’t be exactly the same format, either. And shouldn’t be. New times call for new ideas and a new look. But what the new Crossfire can provide is just what the old one did, and what we still desperately need on television today: a lively, informed, intelligent, and colorful – without being mean! – debate on the issues of the day. I’m happy Crossfire’s coming back ...
A historic number of women will take their seats in the U.S. Senate this January -- a full fifth of the upper chamber -- yet the country has still not seen fit to elect a female president or Vice President. The two main parties have, time and time again, neglected to nominate women for either role. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton came close to nabbing the Democratic nomination in 2008 before falling to President Barack Obama, and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) rose to national prominence on the ultimately unsuccessful presidential ticket of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). In 1984, Democratic presidential nominee Walter Mondale chose Rep. Geraldine Ferraro (D-N.Y.) as his running mate, but the pair lost in a landslide to incumbent President Ronald Reagan. For many, the election of a female president is long past due. Women make up half of the populace. They vote at a higher rate than their male counterparts. Twenty-two countries looked to female leaders to occupy their highest executive offices in 2011, ...
-- 4/26/2013 -- Anna Maria Chavez leaves a professional footprint that suggests an ideology at odds with the Church. In spite of her Catholic faith, she has publicly aligned herself with pro-abortion politicians, public figures, and organizations — and there’s no evidence that she’s ever publicly defended the Church’s specific positions on sexuality, contraception, or abortion or sought to distance herself in any way from the pro-abortion politics of her Democrat mentors. Consider: • As a law student, Chavez wrote that she “greatly admired” Geraldine Ferraro, a pro-abortion Catholic feminist, and had hoped that Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, another pro-abortion feminist, would usher in a new era of women’s rights. • As a lawyer, Chavez rose in Democrat political circles, from policy advisor to Bill Clinton’s Transportation Secretary to the inner circle of her self-described mentor pro-abortion Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano.

This is a great history of women's lives. And Hillary!
Geraldine Ferraro, Barbara Jordan, Ann Richards and Shirley Chisholm are the reasons why I love politics
Congresswoman Grace Meng is the first Asian-American member of Congress from New York and the first female member of Congress from Queens since former Vice Presidential nominee Geraldine Ferraro.

Geraldine Ferraro blazed a trail but so did Shirley Chisholm.
Colin Powell says that you have to be a white, protestant male in order to have a voice in the Republican Party. I have a friend who agrees with this statement. So…let’s explore it: 1) The United States has had two Black Secretaries of State. Both were appointed by Republicans (Powell ought to know, he was one of ‘em). 2) The Republican party ran a woman on the Presidential ticket in 2008. Democrats have not done so since Geraldine Ferraro. 3) There is only one Black Senator in the United States of America. He is a Republican. 4) There is only one Black Supreme Court Justice. He is a Republican. 5) Obama’s cabinet is the whitest, and malest since Dwight D. Eisenhower’s. 6) He didn’t win, but Republican Presidential Candidate Herman Cain was NOT half Irish. And Democrats destroyed his candidacy. 7) Republicans did not filibuster to try and stop the Civil Rights Act from coming to a vote. Democrats did. 8) Republicans did not bring the KKK and Jim Crowe into American life. Democrats did. 9) Rep ...
I often wondered if Geraldine Ferraro, Ted Kennedy and Joe Biden listen to the talk shows and read the local papers while they are here and how they react. Can you imagine them hearing Mario go GOD.AWFTA NOON. LOL. Or Anne Golden Cackling and making those Repulican statements, Or Redfield claiming to know all these D.C. politicians as personnal friends. LOL I wonder if they ever hear me talk and say "who the *** is that? They must bring him there is a straight jacket? Just wondering
On July 12th, 1984 - Democratic candidate for President, Walter Mondale, made history when he selected Geraldine Ferraro as his running mate. But do you remember what controversy dimmed her rising star?

If you think this is extreme, remember that Geraldine Ferraro and other leftists suggested dividing the nation when George Bush was elected. They wanted to merge New England and the Pacific coast states with Canada and rename the United States "Jesusland." So, the Sons of Liberty have a counter-proposal that we think more accurately reflects the character of America. Enjoy the words, you stinking Marxists. DISCLAIMER For Janet "Nappy Jan" Napolitano and Her Brownshirts: HUMOR PIECE FOLLOWS. HISTORIC REFERENCE IS JONATHAN SWIFT'S "A MODEST PROPOSAL." How to divide the land mass between real Americans and psychotic Marxists and their illegal alien hordes? We suggest trimming off the edges and cutting out the Marxist tumors, leaving behind the 95-97 percent of the current United States that is filled with patriots. California can be divided between The Peoples Republic of Mexifornia in the south and the Peoples Republic of San Francisco in the north. The Peoples Republic of San Francisco can adopt the Rainbo ...
Do you know what these women have in common?Hilary Clinton, Geraldine Ferraro, Gloria Steinem, Darla Moore, Diane Sawyer, Leslie Stahl, Andrea Mitchell, Tipper Gore, Elizabeth Edwards, Jody Foster, Merryl Streep, Carolyn Bissett... they are all blonde and NOT dumb. If you are dumb it is NOT because you are blonde... it is because you are DUMB. Sexist stereotypes hurt our young women and offend our older ones.
wants to really know who's the one for office or what party,is it Democrats, Bull Connor was a Democrat or should I go with Michael Dukakis or Geraldine Ferraro or the militant turned *** being Jesse Jackson or is it Obama again the one who has done more for the rich than he has Joe the plumber...
Remember Rosa Parks, Madame Curie, Emily Dickinson, Eleanor Roosevelt, Geraldine Ferraro how much did they think about birth control?
Today, I realized for the first time that Geraldine Ferraro and Janeane Garofalo are not the same person.
I am afraid that this could be 2000 and 2004 all over again. I am so infuriated that Obama didn't show up for the first debate, because it is painfully obvious that we have a nation chock-full-of dunderheads who judge everything on appearance, or the theory that you elect the guy you'd like to have a beer with... I have heard all morning that if Obama had come to play in the first debate, then it would be all over now. Well, if the Reverend Wright tape had come before Super Tuesday, we would have a President who sure as *** would have come to her first debate more than ready and able to wipe that smirk off of Romney's face. I had so hoped that I would "get over" the fact that Obama got the Democratic nomination; I know now that I never will. I will never be able to vote for the man who allowed his campaign to denigrate the name of Geraldine Ferraro simply because she spoke the truth. He was the "feel good" story for young people and people of color... who had better get the *** out and vote again! Thos . ...
On this date in History ... Oct 15, 1976: The first Vice Presidential debate is held between Bob Dole (Gerald Ford’s running mate) and Walter Mondale (Jimmy Carter’s running mate). The first ever “zinger” on a VP debate was landed by Mondale when he said, “I think Senator Dole has richly earned his reputation as a hatchet man." Carter/Mondale won the election that year. There was no VP debate in 1980 as Reagan and Carter could not agree on a format. The VP debate was the format that spotlighted the first 2 women on a national ticket : Dem. Geraldine Ferraro in 1984, and Sarah Palin in 2008.
Being a Vice President Candidate is a tough job. History better remember you when you lose. Dan Quayle, Geraldine Ferraro, Cheyney.You win and you're forgotten or you lose and become the scapegoat.
Captain Picard and Geraldine Ferraro in the same dream. My sleeping brain thinks up the weirdest stuff.
Interesting a CNN poll Has it Ryan 48% Biden 44% . This is a CNN poll mind you...not FOX. As I said before, the supporters of these candidates are excited, no knock outs. And no deer in the headlines look by either candidate. However, how this debate will be remembered is how Joe acted. Which may not look well for the TV audience. Biden did do his job tonight. He played attack dog. Watch other VP debates where VP attcked almost the same way as Joe. Go to youtube and watch when Vice President George Bush debate Geraldine Ferraro. A week before Walter Mondale whiped Ronald Reagan in their first debate. So it was up to Bush to pull Reagan from a sinking ship. Bush acted like a man who was on speed as he debated Ferraro. The Dan Quayle who debated Al Gore in 1992. Quayle was all pumped and ready to go as he attacked Clinton/Gore. However, what is remembered about the Quayle/Gore/Stockdale debate, is Stockdales question about himself, "Who am I...Why am I here?" And Stockdale falling asleep in ...
Geraldine Ferraro just b*tchslapped Dan Quayle & Kitty Dukakis had to put down her AuquaNet snifter to break it up.
With the exception of *** Cheney's performance in these debates, going into tonight's Vice Presidential debate, the Pubs don't really have a proud history of good outcomes. Bob Dole blamed the "Democrat Party" for all wars including World War II in 1976. George H.W. Bush declined to debate Walter Mondale in 1980 (I didn't know that). In 1984, Bush was criticized for being too rough with Geraldine Ferraro. Of course in 1988, Dan Quayle learned that he was "no John Kennedy." Finally, in 2008, Sarah Palin made it clear to the moderator that she wasn't going to answer the questions, but just talk about whatever she felt like talking about (and, of course, threw in a "you betcha' or two."
Watching old Vice President debates from the 80's on c-span. So far I've learned Geraldine Ferraro was way smarter than Palin, Dan Quayle was indeed an *** and they all argued about the same stuff as today: Iran, raiding social security, out of control deficit spending, damages to the economy of environmentalism, and how screwed we will be if the "other guy" gets elected. Ah gotta love politics!
Wow, on CSPAN right now is the 1984 VP debate between George Bush Sr. and Geraldine Ferraro! What a blast from the past! Next up will be...

Some election trivia. The Republican Vice Presidential nominee, Congressman Paul Ryan is the first member of The House of Representatives to be chosen as a Vice Presidential running mate for a candidate since Walter Mondale chose Geraldine Ferraro has his running mate back in 1984, and that was the first time in history that a woman of a major party had been chosen as a Vice Presidential candidate!!
Thanks to the 19th and 26th amendments, I was able to vote for Eugene McCarthy, John Anderson, Geraldine Ferraro (and whoever was on the ticket with her), Ross Perot, Ralph Nader, John Kerry, and John McCain (three times if you count primaries). Clearly I pick Presidents as well as I pick husbands. So here's hoping I don't vote for your favorite candidate this year.
I wasn't alive in 1984. How could you tell anyone apart on the picture box? I thought Geraldine Ferraro was Princess Di for a moment.

It turns out the Christ Christie was asked first to be Romney's VP choice. Christie turned him down. Why? Christie believes Romney will lose and he wants to be President on January 20, 2017. Important historical note for those of you who haven't followed this stuff for 25 years, keeping notes along the way and getting a degree in Political Science (among other things): THE BEST WAY TO KILL YOUR POLITICAL FUTURE IS TO BE THE Vice President NOMINEE ON A LOSING TICKET. Don't believe me? Let me throw some names at you. Sarah Palin, John Edwards, Joe Lieberman, Jack Kemp, Loyd Bentsen, Geraldine Ferraro, Sargent Shriver. Bob Dole was the losing VP in 1976 and it took him 20 years to climb back up to be the Presidential nominee in 1996. Also, winning one term, but losing the second term is also a career killer: Walter Mondale (lost 49 states) and Dan Quayle are prime examples.
