It was President Ford’s biggest and most courageous decision. Let’s recall the events of September 8, 1974:
President Ford won in the end. Years later, the JFK Library Foundation presented him its “2001 Profile in Courage Award.” The award celebrated the fact that President Ford put country over his political ambitions.
And he did.
We remember that kind of presidential leadership today.
President Ford left politics in 1977 and died in 2006. The pardon looks better and better with age, and so does the 30-month “accidental” Ford presidency.
