Ms. Ferraro was a wonderful person. For her, it was all about the political process and not about focusing attention on herself, unlike so many posturing politicians we have today.

Rest in peace, brave lady!

A class act in that she stood up against the sliming of Hilary Clinton and Sarah Palin with equal vigor.

She was the forerunner to "NO BS" politicos. Too bad her husband was shady. Great lady. Strong lady. Cute too!

TMZ staff, asleep at the wheel once again.

Please edit your story on Ms. Ferraro and change the "Demorat" to "Democrat."

Sheesh. I'm really hoping this was yet another "honest" mistake....

I am betting the Demorat comment was nothing but a typo. Not much bad to say about this lady. Too bad we don't have more like her in political arena.

Well done!!! Rest in Peace.

Those who were around back then will remember that Mondale didn't have a prayer against Reagan in '84 and when he added Ferraro to the ticket, his chances suddenly became 10 times worse! Most people couldn't stand to listen to her because she was so obnoxious. The (re)election was one of the biggest landslides in political history.

She ran the worst vice-prez campaign in 1984. That's why they only got 1 state to turn blue. She was lousy & talked smack. Since 2008 I watched her & she is still clueless.

No grasp of issues, cant debate, 2-faced, bashed Gov Sarah Palin. RIP

Every time a Demorat leaves the stage, it's one less moonbat in the media spotlight
