    That is now worthy of putting your name on a warship? Wtf...

    I could think of a dozen more worthy American Presidents...
    Sadly not much in 2 years.

    What were President Gerald Ford's accomplishments?

    They probably all have ships named for them already. Ford was a member of the House Republican leadership for almost 25 years.

    Well... W. wasn't elected either, and he got a killing boat named after him, too. And I think it helps being a Republican.

    Domestic accomplishments of President Ford:
    Presided over the worst economy in the four decades since the Great Depression, with growing inflation and a recession during his tenure. His Whip Inflation Now (WIN) crusade urging the public to rein in spending and consumption failed badly
    Controversially granted a presidential pardon to President Richard Nixon for his role in the Watergate scandal
    Signed the Education for All Handicapped Children Act of 1975, which established special education throughout the United States

    Foreign policy accomplishments of President Ford:
    Signed the Helsinki Accords, marking a move toward détente in the Cold War
    Officially ended US involvement in the Vietnam War after North Vietnam conquered South Vietnam

    I'm sure it will be replaced by a more modern, less corrosive and easier to regulate form of power in the not to distant future.
    Steam is 18th century technology.
