And Then There Were Three...

Gerald Ford has passed away at age 93, leaving Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and George H.W. Bush as the only living American ex-presidents.

Ford made perhaps the hardest decision in the history of the American presidency--- The pardon of Richard Nixon for all crimes committed during the Watergate fiasco. Perhaps because of this, the nation never really got a chance to see just what kind of president Ford could have been--- He didn't remain in office long enough to make a real impact.

Goodbye, Mr. President.
