History making women in politics

 Conniving Clinton and pinheaded Palin both want to be women who make history as the first woman to be on the presidential ticket. While each may be a player and of note in the history of her party...they'e certainly not firsts. In my own time and memory are Geraldine Ferraro, VP candidate on the Democratic ticket in 1984 and Lenora Fulani, a Presidential candidate on the ballot in both 1988 and 1992. There were others, as wikipedia knows:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_female_United_States_presidential_and_vice-presidential_candidates 

In this 2008 Campaign the Green, Socialism/Libertarian, and Socialist parties all have women candidates on their ticket. http://www.politics1.com/p2008.htm No news airtime for their "barrier-breaking" women leaders.
