I first saw Ann Richards on television in 1988, when she delivered the keynote at the Democratic National Convention. I remember her saying, “Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did. She just did it backwards and in high heels.” – Her humor always on display, she said, “I did not want my tombstone to read, ‘She kept a really clean house.’ I think I’d like them to remember me by saying, ‘She opened government to everyone.'”  She was a great leader, and will be missed.
