RIP, Geraldine Ferraro, a class act with a Queens accent, streaked hair and a husband with financial problems. 

Thank you for sweeping the mine field that separated a sexist society from the growing pool of qualified women leaders 27 years ago, making it probable that one will be elected president someday, and for all the right reasons.

For an extended obituary, see She Ended the Men's Club of National Politics, in today's New York Times:

There's a video of a recent interview with her, here

Interesting that she got shot down in the NY Senate race because of her husband's financial problems while Republicans re-elect a man who hires prostitutes and wears diapers. Whe was a smart savvy woman.
