Is Ford Finished?

January 1976
National Review;1/23/1976, Vol. 28 Issue 1, p22
The article ponders on the weakness of U.S. President Gerald Ford as a U.S. presidential candidate in 1976. Ford was an incumbent president and was enjoying all the political advantages of such position. However, Ford did not seem to be a serious contender anymore. Ford had never presided over a national campaign, and his effort in the 1976 campaign seemed to reflect that fact. Another factor that indicated his weakness as a candidate was the palpable change that occurred in the national atmosphere surrounding Ford.
