March 26, 2011

Geraldine Ferraro died Saturday, having left an abiding mark on the nation's politics. She was the first woman selected by a major political party as a vice presidential nominee, and figures from both the Democratic and Republican parties recognized her for her trailblazing. Here's a look at Ferraro through the year's beginning with her on the campaign trail in 1984.
