RIP sir. Rip in pepperoni. Rest In Peace, Fritz. RIP. I proudly voted for Walter Mondale in 1984, the first election I was elgiable to vote in. But then led a successful life of being a decent human being. Mondale served in a functional United States Senate. Republicans and Democrats listened to each other, created legislation, and governed.

Mondale passed, so sad. FoKKKs cretins will be celebrating his death in 3...2...1.... One of my favorite lines I heard from him (though some variation might be older): “I always wanted to run for President in the worst way, and I did.” Based It's kind of suspicious that everybody Jimmy Carter knows keeps dying

May he Rest In Peace

Former VP, Ambassador to Japan, and most importantly for me, friend and mentor and Chairman of the International Advisory Board of the Mansfield Foundation, Fritz Mondale was one of the kindest, smartest, and most thoughtful listeners I have known in public service. Had a Mondale/Ferraro bumper sticker. Rest in peace Walter.

😢😥 RIP Rest in peace Mr. Vice President! My first vote for president in a general election. Rest in peace. Aww. My mom babysat for his kids when she was 12. That was a long time ago. RIP 🙏 🙏
