President Ford had a reputation for centrism and bipartisanship, but he could score points against the Democrats when speaking at GOP conventions. One of my favorite Ford lines was an anti-Clinton zinger from his speech at the 1996 Republican National Convention:
A few years ago, when I suddenly found myself president, I said I was a Ford, not a Lincoln. Today, what we have in the White House is neither a Ford or a Lincoln. What we have is a convertible Dodge.
Isn’t it time we have a trade-in?
