Steffi wrote about McKinney/Clemente:

"The campaign has a feminist dimension flowing straight from the candidates but 
also because this is the first all-female ticket in U.S. history -- in case this 
fact has eluded anyone."

Perhaps it eluded them because it isn't true. :-)

In 1980, Workers World Party ran Deirdre Griswold and Gavrielle Holmes, and in 
both 1996 and 2000 ran Monica Moorehead and Gloria LaRiva.

And, although she didn't have a female running mate, we should recall in this 
context that Victoria Woodhull was the first woman candidate for President...in 
1872.
