Before there was a Sarah Palin Geraldine was the first woman nominated on a presidential ticket.
Actually, what you meant to say was "the first woman nominated for VP by a major party on a presidential ticket."
Depending on who you believe, either Victoria Woodhull (1872) or Belva Ann Lockwood (1884) was the first woman on a presidential ticket, running for president. Marietta Stow was Lockwood's running mate and as such, became the first woman on a presidential ticket for vice president.

Hee. I know you were joking, but if you'd been serious, there'd be soooo many things wrong with that statement.
Anyhoo. It's a running gag, sort of, that when someone dies, my mother will tell me about it and then say, "Go ahead-- say 'who's that?'" I think I impressed her by saying without hesitation, "First female vice-presidential candidate." (I know, which isn't technically true).

But the NY Times would NEVER quash something that doesn't fit into their PC worldview. That's why they've given SO MUCH coverage to the Jesse Dirkhising story over the years and NONE to Matthew Shepherd...
