President Gerald R. Ford

Former President Gerald R. Ford, who gently led the United States out of the tumultuous Watergate era but who lost his own bid for election after pardoning President Richard M. Nixon, died Tuesday, December 26, 2006 at his home in Rancho Mirage, Calif.

He was 93, making him the oldest former president, surpassing Ronald Reagan, who died in 2004, by just over a month.

The quote that I associate with President Ford is his statement --- “You can disagree without being disagreeable.”
