Ellen McCormack, a New York housewife who briefly became a national figure in American politics when she twice ran for president, in 1976 and 1980, in campaigns designed to galvanize the antiabortion movement, has died. She was 84. McCormack died of congestive heart failure Sunday at an assisted-living facility in Avon, Conn., said a daughter, Kathy McCormack-Batterson. In the 1976 Democratic presidential primary, McCormack made history twice. She was the first female candidate to receive Secret Service protection and to qualify for federal matching funds.

Geraldine A. Ferraro, the savvy New York Democrat who was embraced as a symbol of women's equality in 1984 when she became the first woman nominated for vice president by a major party, died Saturday at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. She was 75. The cause was complications from multiple myeloma, her family said. Ferraro was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, an incurable form of blood cancer, in 1998. She did not disclose her illness publicly until 2001, when she went on NBC's "Today" show and said she had beaten the cancer into remission with thalidomide, the once-banned drug that had proven effective with some end-stage cancers.
