    1974: Unusual succession makes Ford the ONLY unelected president.

    EVERY other President of the US was either elected by popular vote, or became POTUS due to the death of the preceding prez. after being elected as Vice President.

    But, not Gerald Ford. He was appointed to replace Spiro Agnew who resigned due to tax problems, then Nixon resigned due to Watergate and voilà, Ford is POTUS!!

    Enough about politics!! Off to pass out the greens!!
