    If and when President ford kicks the bucket...

    What will his legacy be?

    Other than pardoning Nixon...what exactly did Ford do?

    Boy ... this is going to be a tough one.

    would they line the streets at his funeral?

    will the hippies show up to honor him?

    CNSY can be the band at the wake.

    This thread is in very poor taste ... That's because I don't care.
    If ever there was a useless President ... not bad just useless ... it was Bobblehead Ford.

    To me, he was a nice guy who carried out the end of the Nixon administration, like the intern who stitches up the patient after the surgeon is done repairing a guy who just got mangled in a car crash. I like the guy, personnaly, though. Luckily, we didn't have a major disaster while he was in office.

    His legacy will be, "falling downstairs" and "hitting people with golf balls".

    I can't understand how a "NICE GUY" like Ford ever made it Washington with the rest of those "f-cking crooked back stabbing politician bastards"

    "Merry CHRISTmas President Ford"

    I've grown fond of Gerald. He restored some decency to the presidency after the Nixon fiasco. I don't believe he ever vetoed a bill while in office. Was the butt of many bumbling jokes and had a partying son and I believe a good looking daughter who either married a musician or a Chicago Bear (don't remember). Then there was squeaky Fromm, who almost ended his life. It was a crazy time, glad he survived and I think he'll be remembered warmly.
