Email

Here's an email my wife sent me today.

So, I'm reading this article on CNN.

Do these sentences go together?

A recent Rutgers University study said historically, women don't vote for a candidate because a woman is on the ticket. They tend to vote Democratic.

That happened in 1984 for former New York Rep. Geraldine Ferraro, the first female vice presidential of a major political party. Despite the historic nature of the race, her addition to Walter Mondale's ticket proved fruitless.

If I didn't know better, I would say that this portion of the article is claiming that women didn't for the ticket with Ferraro because they voted Democratic instead.

Grr.
