Walter Frederick "Fritz" Mondale (born January 5, 1928) is an American politician and member of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party (largely established by former Vice President Hubert Humphrey). He was the forty-second Vice President of the United States (1977–1981) under President Jimmy Carter. He was also a two-term United States Senator from Minnesota and the Democratic Party nominee for president in 1984 against the incumbent, Republican Ronald Reagan. Reagan was re-elected in a landslide victory in which Mondale carried only his home state of Minnesota and the District of Columbia, winning 40.6% of the nationwide popular vote. Later, during the administration of Democratic President Bill Clinton he served as the United States Ambassador to Japan from 1993-1996.

Early life

Walter Frederick ("Fritz") Mondale was born on January 5, 1928, in Ceylon, Minnesota, the son of Theodore Sigvaard Mondale, a United Methodist Church minister, and elementary school teacher Claribel Hope Cowan. He spent his boyhood in the small towns of southern Minnesota, where he attended public schools. His half-brother was the Unitarian minister Lester Mondale. He was educated at Macalester College in St. Paul and the University of Minnesota, where he earned his B.A. in Political Science, graduating in 1950. Mondale did not have the money for law school, so he enlisted in the U.S. Army in part to take advantage of the G.I. Bill. He then served for two years at Fort Knox, as a corporal in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. He graduated from the University of Minnesota Law School in 1956, having also served on the Minnesota Law Review and as a law clerk in the Minnesota Supreme Court under Justice Thomas F. Gallagher. He began to practice law in Minneapolis, and continued to do so for four years before entering the political arena. is the 5th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Under Carter, Mondale traveled extensively throughout the nation and the world advocating the administration's foreign policy. Mondale was the first vice president to have an office in the White House, and established the concept of "activist Vice President". He expanded the vice president's role from that of figurehead to presidential adviser, full-time participant, and troubleshooter for the administration. Subsequent vice presidents have followed this model in the administrations in which they serve. Mondale established the tradition of weekly lunches with the president, which continues to this day.

Presidential nominee of 1984

After losing the 1980 election, he returned briefly to the practice of law at Winston and Strawn, a large Chicago-based law firm. Mondale ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in the 1984 election. He was the frontrunner in the race, facing competition from Rev. Jesse Jackson and Senator Gary Hart of Colorado. Jackson's support dried up after he made an off-the-record reference to Jews as "Hymies" and New York City as "Hymietown." Mondale used the Wendy's slogan "Where's the beef?" to describe Hart's policies as lacking depth. Mondale clinched the nomination with the majority of delegates on the first ballot.

When he made his acceptance speech at the Democratic Convention, Mondale said: "By the end of my first term, I will reduce the Reagan budget deficit by two-thirds. Let's tell the truth. It must be done, it must be done. Mr. Reagan will raise taxes, and so will I. He won't tell you. I just did."[2] While this was meant to show that Mondale would be honest with voters, it was largely interpreted as a campaign pledge to raise taxes, which was unappealing to some voters. In 1986, Reagan did sign into law a bill that lowered taxes for corporations and raised the tax rates for individual taxpayers, raising the bottom tax rate from 11% to 15% and lowering the top tax rate from 50% to 28% (Tax Reform Act of 1986). President Ronald Reagan signs the Tax Reform Act of 1986 on the South Lawn. ...


At the Democratic Convention, Mondale chose U.S. Representative Geraldine A. Ferraro of New York as his running mate, making her the first woman nominated for that position by a major party. Aides later said that Mondale was determined to establish a precedent with his vice presidential candidate, considering San Francisco Mayor Dianne Feinstein, also a female, Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley, an African American, and San Antonio Mayor Henry Cisneros, a Mexican American, as other finalists for the nomination.[3] Others however preferred Senator Lloyd Bentsen because he would appeal to the Deep South, or even nomination rival Gary Hart who was expected to perform ten points better than Mondale in a hypothetical matchup with President Reagan. Ferraro, as a Catholic, came under fire from the Roman Catholic Church for being pro-choice, which contradicts the Church's dogma. Further controversy erupted over her changing positions regarding the release of her husband's tax returns.

Mondale ran a liberal campaign, supporting a nuclear freeze and the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). He spoke against what he considered to be unfairness in Reagan's economic policies and the need to reduce federal budget deficits. However, he was going up against a popular incumbent and his campaign was widely considered ineffective. Also, he was perceived as supporting the poor at the expense of the middle class. Southern whites and northern blue collar workers who usually voted Democrat switched their support to Reagan because they credited him with the economic boom and saw him as strong on national security issues.
