It's undeniable that Betty Ford was a revolutionary First Lady, and the first product of the "women's lib" generation to sit beside a President.
While pictures of her over the last week have resembled remarkable stoicism, the view of her seated in the limousine this morning in obvious grief, while awaiting former President Ford's casket to be brought out of the Capitol, was very sad to watch.
I hope history remembers her well, as in her own way, she did as much to move the country forward on social issues, as President Ford did to help heal the nation from the scandal of Watergate. How lucky we were to have her.
Their kids didn't turn out too badly either.
