Rest in Peace President Ford

While not yet living while he was in office, there is always something bittersweet about the passing of an ex-president. The passing away of a great man who rose to the highest pinnacle of the world's most powerful democracy mixed with healing and resolution that both sides of the aisle can appreciate. The most recent example besides Ford was the passing of Reagan (who never seemed to get his full due recognition until after he was gone). I was surprised to learn Ford actually survived two assasination attempts in a span of three weeks. Talk about not being hugely popular, especially after pardoning Nixon. But a nice, eloquent roundup of Ford can be found at RedState here. Rest In Peace Mr. President.
