Gerald Ford Turns 90

Gerald Ford Turns 90. This is a few years old but noteworthy. That birthday made Ford the fourth former president to reach 90. The others were John Adams, Herbert Hoover, and Ronald Reagan.

From the site:

Gerald Ford says he hopes history will remember him for restoring honesty and integrity to the American presidency.

Ford turned 90 on Monday, joining John Adams, Herbert Hoover and Ronald Reagan as the only former presidents to become nonagenarians.

"I hope and trust historians 50 years from now will say President Ford restored integrity and honesty in the White House and say he solved the problems in Vietnam, the Watergate mess and the economy," he said in a recent telephone interview with the Hartford Courant from his home in Beaver Creek, Colo.
