Jerry Ford's Classy Farewell

Carl Cannon, RealClearPolitics
On this date in 1977, President Ford delivered a State of the Union speech that doubled as his farewell address. Although Ford had lost the presidency two months earlier to Jimmy Carter in a close, and cleanly fought, campaign, the two men were destined to become close friends.No one knew at the time how that bond would develop, but what observant Americans did know — and were reminded of 41 years ago today — was how fortunate we had all been to have had Jerry Ford in the White House during that difficult period in American history.
