I’ll never forget in 1984 when Walter Mondale made history by selecting the first woman, Geraldine Ferraro, to be his running mate in his bid for Presidency.  As a freshman in college studying political science it was a proud moment and even more exciting working on their campaign.  I recently came across a Mondale/Ferraro button I had from those days.  Despite the landslide loss she paved the way for other women in politics for years to come.
