The only president to never be elected has passed away at the age of 93. Our 38th President was appointed as Vice President under then President Richard Nixon, then became president after Nixon's Resignation.



But one thing Ford did is making a profound difference in the lives of Americans living today. Measured by its lasting impact, Ford’s most significant act as president was appointing John Paul Stevens to the Supreme Court.

Next week will mark the 31st anniversary of Stevens’ taking his oath as an associate justice of the Supreme Court. Stevens has turned out to be one of the stalwart members of the court's liberal wing.

Thirty years after Ford left office, Americans are living under legal rules created by the Supreme Court, in many cases by 5-to-4 decisions with Stevens in the majority.

Is it true that Richard Nixon was wanting John Connelly to be his Vice-President but chose Ford in the end? I heard that on the news today and didn't know that. They said the only reason Nixon didn't choose Connelly was that Connelly was in trouble for corruption. So Ford was next in line. Anyone want to bring up the Kennedy assassination? Two figures deeply involved in it.
