    Best to Fritz and the children. They were one great team when we needed principled leadership. I'm sure those who knew Joan will feel this more deeply than those of us who (like me) were merely inspired by both Mondales, but this still hurts.
    Mondale-Ferraro forever

    Joan Mondale was always a class act. She and of course her husband Walter and represent the kind of politicians that are fast dying out: intelligent, pragmatic, reasonable and honest. RIP Joan.

    Joan should have been FLOTUS in 1985 instead of clueless,Orwellian,"just say no" Nancy.
