Gerald Ford was not a conservative

Please keep that nugget in the back of your mind in the coming week as his well deserved tributes are played on the news. I've heard him referred to as a conservative a couple of times. He most certainly was not, and I suspect the ill informed individuals who call him one are doing so in yet another effort to try to paint present day conservatives as having drifted to the 'hard right'.
