RIP, Jerry Ford

My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over.

-- Gerald R. Ford (July 14, 1913 - December 26, 2006), 38th president & 40th vice president of the United States, on being sworn into office August 9, 1974 following the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon.

Ford remains the only US president to hold office without ever winning a national election.
