Geraldine Ferraro Breaks New Barrier, Becomes First Female U.S. Vice-Presidential Candidate in Heaven
I'm sure you've probably heard the sad news that former congressperson from New York and America's first-ever female vice-presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro succumbed to blood cancer over the weekend at the age of 75.
Whether you remember her for her unforgettable ground-breaking achievements or her wish-you-could-forgettable controversies, I think we can all agree that Walter Mondale looked like somebody's sad carpet-salesman uncle next to her. And that's what really matters.
Here is her one appearance on The Daily Show, from 2005. (Not sure why they never got around to interviewing her back in 1984. Probably because she's a woman. Figures.)
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11/10c.
