She was a class act. It was very hard for other women to follow her because Geraldine knew things and had experience. Class act, right on the issues.

Though I disagreed with her on most every political topic, she represented herself well. When on Fox News and other programs she always gave an argument in a dignified way. She will be missed...

Oh for the times when the politicians could disagree vehemently, but still reach a compromise. RIP Ms. Ferraro.

As an congressional intern in the 1980s, I followed a bill for several weeks through a committee Ferraro was on. Although my political philosophy differed, I grew to have enormous respect for her. She was always prepared, never needed promptings from some legislative aide, was very well informed, and always stayed on point. She never made the fact that she was a woman an issue, she never made her comments personal or negative towards the person testifying, but she insisted that the person testifying be exacting and specific and honest. Ferraro was a force to be reckoned with. She served her state and her country well. RIP.
