Since she herself emerged on the national scene in 2008, Sarah Palin has made it a habit to compliment women successful in the political profession, regardless of their party. Here is her Facebook note on the passing of Geraldine Ferraro:

"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. ~ Sarah Palin"
