o not underestimate the power of the late Gerald Ford's indictment of the decision to go to war in Iraq, the misuse of the WMD argument to pressure the country to war, and what President Ford called the "fever" of Vice President Cheney.

President Ford could have embargoed his statements until President Bush leaves office, but he did not.

The fevered push by President Bush for his
upcoming surge is a new Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, with one last desperate attempt to pressure and intimidate generals to support a policy they in truth oppose.

When dignitaries gather for the final ceremony to honor President Ford, many Americans will be comparing the legacies of George Bush and Richard Nixon.

When the camera looks across those who gather for the eulogy to President Ford, the camera will stop at the face of President Bush, and everyone will be thinking the same thing: that President Ford opposed his war.

Then the camera will stop at the visage of Vice President Cheney, and one word will come to all: "fever".

President Ford's last great service to the Nation is very powerful indeed. Perhaps it has come, just in time.
