MINNEAPOLIS -- Eleanor Mondale, a vice president's daughter who carved out her own identity as a broadcast journalist and gossip magnet, has died at her home in Minnesota. She was 51.

Family spokeswoman Lynda Pedersen says Mondale died Saturday.

Mondale had been diagnosed with brain cancer years earlier.

The daughter of former Vice President Walter Mondale and his wife, Joan, Eleanor Mondale had been off the air at WCCO-AM in Minneapolis since March 2009. That's when she announced her brain cancer had returned a second time.

Mondale had surgery to remove the tumor in August 2009. After surgery, she returned to her Prior Lake farm, where she lived with her third husband, musician Chan Poling (PAHL'-ing).

So young.

Wasn’t she visiting the WH about the same time Monica was doing Bill?
As I recall she was very pretty.

Eleanor was one of Billy Goat Clinton’s squeezes.

Her slipping into the White House aroused much jealousy in Miz Lewinsky.

It’s a terrible thing when a parent has to bury a child.

May The Lord comfort the Mondales and all who loved her.

Odd co-incidence: another daughter of a famed pol has died, and she was also 51: Kara Kennedy (daughter of Ted)

Condolences to her family. I’ve known several who have died from brain cancer, the latest a young man with a family.

Ironically, Ted Kennedy’s daughter Kara, also 51, has passed away as well.
