Tom DeFrank, a political journalist, had a deal with Jerry Ford. DeFrank could have regular access to Ford, who would speak his mind, but only on condition that his remarks would not be published until after Ford's death. This is the result. What becomes clear is that Jerry Ford was truly a decent and good man. In this day where radicalism and self-interest in politics seems so prevalent, it was refreshing to read the remarks of a career politician who had the country's, not his own, best interests at heart. Nothing too startling. He didn't like Ronald Reagan, and that dislike, among other things, probably helped bring him and Jimmy Carter together after their retirements. Early on, he predicted Hillary Clinton would run for president by 2004 or 2008. He remained active until very late in life--DeFrank chronicles his decline.
