Bicentennial: Political Paradox The man they called on to restore integrity to Washington. The man they tried to kill in California. A 1935 graduate of the University of Michigan and the 38th president of the United States . . . Gerald Ford. From his first day in office on, he was a paradox- ical president. He became the leader of the world ' s largest democracy through an appointment to the Vice-Presidency by Richard Nixon, and after Nixon ' s subsequent resignation, became the first chief execu- tive of this country not elected by the people. Many thought the nation needed a president who could bring the executive and legislative branches in- to a cooperation that would lift a crippled govern- ment to its feet, but this president used his veto pow- er as few presidents have to restore order to the na- tion ' s government. Gerald Ford became president in a paradoxical way and to many he continued to be a paradox as he served. Contradiction did not remain the sole property of Gerald Ford and the federal government; the univer- sity had its share of paradoxes too. Another presi- dent, University President Robben Fleming, began meeting with student government representatives and it looked as though that move would result in more effective government at the university level. In the same year though, students voted to end automatic MSA funding, a move that seemed to doom student government to perpetual ineffectiveness and a slow death. America ' s bicentennial year was a year of para- doxes, raising questions without answers and re- minding us how unsure things are, even after 200 years.
