He also said, "I'm Gerald R. Ford, and you're not!"

Given the way they were portraying him, I thought Ford was an 
incredibly good sport to allow his press secretary to guest host and 
to participate himself.  In general, even though I frequently 
disagreed with his policies, I always thought Ford was a good and 
honorable man.  Choosing him for Vice President may have been Nixon's 
greatest decision.
