University of the Patently Obvious

So by now, everyone probably knows that Geraldine Ferraro died today. As a pioneering woman in politics, paving the way for the likes of Hilary Rodham Clinton and (gulp!) Sarah Palin, it's only natural that her death would get lots of press.
As I always do when in my car, while driving home from my class today, I tuned in to WTOP. At the top of the hour, they led with a CBS News Special Report by veteran correspondent Sam Litzinger.
In his report, Litzinger said that Ferraro once commented that she hoped she'd live to see the inauguration of the first woman president. Following that comment, Litzinger said, "She didn't."
Really? Thanks for that astute comment, Sam.
By the way, how much did you pay for that crack journalism education of yours?
