Veep Ferraro

To the Editors:

Exciting days lie ahead in this presidential election year. Geraldine Ferraro [NATION, July 23] is a bright, articulate woman and a tough campaigner. She will make the people of this country proud to have her as a vice-presidential candidate.

I expected Ferraro to be a brassy, pushy New Yorker. After hearing her speak, I became an excited supporter. She has charisma, compassion, the ability to laugh at herself and a human touch that the Republican women in government lack.
