President Gerald Ford

President Gerald Ford passed away Tuesday morning. No cause of death has been named yet. He was 93 years old. President Ford was the first president I ever voted for. Former President Gerald Ford Dies At 93 - Local News

Barbara, forgive me, but you could not have voted for Ford. He was not elected.

No one forgets the first election she is old enough to vote in. As the incumbent president, he ran for another term. No, he did not win, but I did vote for him.

Sorry! My misunderstanding! When you said he was "the first president" you ever voted for, I thought you meant ... well, it's obvious what I thought!

It took me many years to get over the pardoning of Nixon but it really did help heal the country. That trial would have gone on for years and years.

President Ford was a courageous man in many of his decisions, be them popular or not.
