    Whether you are a Dem or a Repub, you have to admit, an extraordinary woman has died.  She was the first and it meant so so so so much.

    To you Republicans, your mother was a woman so you should appreciate the trailblazing.  To you Democrats, shame on any one of you who was petty when Gov Palin was named to the ticket (yes, disagree with political opponents and disagree vigorously but petty?)

    I can tell you that when Geralidine was named as a VP candidate, it was HUGE for women.  It made such a difference!

    I remember when I first met her years later..it was such a thrill.  And as luck would have it, we were colleagues first at CNN (she was a co host of Crossfire and I was a cohost of Burden of Proof) and then at Fox News Channel. As  you know, she was a Fox News Contributor in recent years so I was really lucky to be able to talk to her again and again and again..
