I was looking for a picture of Gerri with Hillary, and I found this video which is what I would call the essential Geraldine Ferraro.   She was fierce!  A force to be reckoned with!  I remember this night as if it were yesterday.   This is priceless!  “Don’t antagonize me!”  When Gerri was on the warpath, everybody out of the way!

Here is the picture I found.  I do not know which university this was, but clearly both Gerri and Hillary were being honored.    Two giants of the women’s movement.

Then, when I was posting the link to this at Team Hillary Clinton, I found these! So I swiped them!

I have that Hillary shirt that Gerri is wearing.  I have it in short and long sleeves!  Gerri looks cute in it!

Statement by President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on the Passing of Geraldine Ferraro

March 26, 2011 | New York, NY | Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton | Statements

“Gerry Ferraro was 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. She was a champion for women and children and for the idea that there should be no limits on what every American can achieve. The daughter of an Italian immigrant family, she rose to become the first woman ever nominated to the national ticket by a major political party. She paved the way for a generation of female leaders and put the first cracks in America’s political glass ceiling. She believed passionately that politics and public service was about making a difference for the people she represented as a congresswoman and Ambassador.

For us, Gerry was above all a friend and companion. From the rough-and-tumble of political campaigns to the important work of international diplomacy, we were honored to have her by our side. She was a tireless voice for human rights and helped lead the American delegation to the landmark Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing in 1995. Through it all, she was a loyal friend, trusted confidante, and valued colleague.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Gerry’s husband John, her children and grandchildren, and their entire family.”
