Honestly, Councilman, I think there are some rare individuals who transcend partisanship. Ferraro never struck me as an ideologue, she worked to help people in all sincerity. The people at Fox News where she was a contributor are clearly touched by her passing. They describe her character in glowing terms. Fox is spending a lot of time interviewing people who knew her. I've rarely heard such warm memories with specific instances of her humor, kindness and wisdom.
Don't forget, she defended Sarah Palin.
I was just reminded that she had a difficult childhood. Her father died when she was 8 years old and her mother supported the family as a seamstress in the garment district in NYC.
