Gerald Ford and Edward Levi:
Over at the WSJ Law Blog, Peter Lattman has an excellent post recalling another important connection between Gerald Ford and the law; the appointment of the universally-respected Edward Levi as Attorney General. I was particularly interested to see this speech Ford gave about Levi, which recounts two interesting tidbits: first, that Levi initially didn't want the job, and second, that the person who first recommended Levi for the AG position was Donald Rumsfeld.
