In the first of a series of conversations with former presidents about the U.S. Constitution, NPR's Cokie Roberts speaks with Gerald Ford. He was the first person to assume the office without being elected president or vice president, rising to power after Richard Nixon resigned in August 1974.

(Recorded as part of a WHYY series featuring conversations with former U.S. presidents.)
