Most Obama voters have no idea who the President was when Joan Mondale was the 2nd Lady.......
R.I.P. Mrs. Mondale. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
A sweet, sweet woman who was great to her kids.
My condolence's to Vice President Mondale and the entire family.
Condolences to the Mondale family.
I wasn't old enough to vote then...sorry for your loss :(
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.
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.
A great lady from another time , when one's word is there bond .
Joan should have been FLOTUS in 1985 instead of clueless,Orwellian,"just say no" Nancy.
Please accept my heartfelt sympathy on the passing of your beloved wife and mother. May your beautiful memories sustain you through your grief. With Many Blessings, tamtam.
