Was Gerald Ford a good President? How will he be remembered in history?
The Nixon pardon seems to be his biggest liability, legacy-wise. But, he's also hampered by two other factors... a short term and never actually being elected.
Three things that are not small, but at the same time he didn't seem to do anything wrong, other than the pardon depending on your point-of-view, and he was the right guy at the right time... somebody plain and boring not stirring up more controversy and drama.
