President Ford was not a great president. He was a good, honest, ethical American. He served in the House of Representatives for many years, representing the great state of Michigan.
He is best known as the man who healed a nation. He was both vice-president and then president but never elected to either position. He was named vice-president after Spiro Agnew resigned his post in the Nixon administration. Then, when President Nixon resigned, he was elevated to the presidency. He pardoned President Nixon, thus Nixon was not impeached.
Rest in Peace.
