    I remember meeting her outside a hotel in 1986 and shaking her hand. I have always remembered you and still have your campaign button. You will always be remembered fondly for your work and for being the first woman to ever run for the office of VP for a major political party. I honor you, Geraldine Ferraro. The politicos were not fair to you. You did a good life. you and yours should be proud of who you were and what you stood for.
