Mondale's defeat was by the largest margin since the 1930's, worse even than George McGovern's in 1972. While Mondale's defeat is striking, the campaign is also notable because it was the first time a woman was included on a major party's ticket. Geraldine Ferraro was selected as his Vice Presidential candidate.
