Palin praises Ferraro

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, the second woman to run on a national ticket, reacted to the death of Geraldine Ferraro in a Facebook posting, calling her an "amazing woman who dedicated her life to public service."  Although the two women could not be further apart politically, they share a unique experience.  Ferraro was often supportive of Palin during the 2008 campaign even if she didn't agree with her policy positions.  Here's Palin's Facebook post:

"My family and I would like to express our sincere condolences to the family of Geraldine Ferraro. When I had the honor of working alongside Geraldine on election night last year, we both discussed the role of women in politics and our excited expectation that someday that final glass ceiling would be shattered by the election of a woman president. She was an amazing woman who dedicated her life to public service as a teacher, prosecutor, Congresswoman, and Vice Presidential candidate. She broke one huge barrier and then went on to break many more. The world will miss her. May she rest in peace and may her example of hard work and dedication to America continue to inspire all women."
