President Ford addressed a private audience at the 100th anniversary commemoration of Dwight D. Eisenhower’s birth. He gave his opinions on a constitutional amendment to allow the president to use a line item veto. He also discussed the situation in the Middle East and United States dependence on foreign oil. President Ford was the only unelected president in the history of the United States. As minority leader in the Senate, he was appointed vice president by President Nixon when Spiro Agnew resigned. He became president when Nixon resigned rather than face impeachment. In 1976 he won the Republican nomination for president, but was defeated by Jimmy Carter. close
