Michelle and I were saddened to learn about the passing of Geraldine Ferraro. Geraldine will forever be remembered as a trailblazer who broke down barriers for women, and Americans of all backgrounds and walks of life.
And as our Ambassador to the UN Human Rights Commission, she stood up for those ideals around the world.
Sasha and Malia will grow up in a more equal America because of the life Geraldine Ferraro chose to live.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to her husband, John Zaccaro, her children and grandchildren, and their entire family.
