Ovaries that Have Gone Before

Well I just heard from a girlfriend weeping and asking me Isn’t this wonderful? Isn’t this historic?

Then I heard John McCain talk about his historic choice.

Now for a history lesson:

 

1872 Victoria Woodhull the first of MANY women to run for president.

1980 Geraldine Ferraro the first woman on a “major party” ticket.

And of course, Senator Clinton.

I couldn’t be more thrilled to have a woman on a ticket, potentially the first woman president given the realities of Sen. McCain’s health. I couldn’t be more thrilled to have the first African-American at the top of the ticket for president. I can’t wait to talk to my daughters about this. It’s a very exciting time, with a lot at stake- but historical?

Not for those who know their history.

The road was paved long before Ms. Palin.
