Congratulations President Ford!

The Honorable Gerald Rudolph Ford, Jr.
38th President of the United States

On Sunday, Gerald Ford became the longest-living president in the history of the United States, having attained the age of 93 years and 121 days. I have long been an admirer of President Ford, who did a great service to my country by restoring the honor of the Presidency after the Watergate scandal. In my mind, he should be numbered among the greatest leaders that this nation has had, and I wish him many more happy years. Here's to hoping that he becomes the first President to reach 100!

Unfortunately, no matter how good a job he did with the office, the very fact that Ford got to be president at all calls attention to what I believe to be one of the few serious flaws in the Constitution: the fact that a person can become president without ever having been elected to any position at all (I know Ford was a congressman, but that's beside the point when talking about the generic issue). There should be protection against an unelected vice president becoming president without a vote.
