Here's your totally useless political fact of the day:
Leslie Lynch King, Jr. is the birth name of American President Gerald
R. Ford. Ford was the son of Leslie Lynch King and his wife Dorothy
Ayer Gardner, who divorced soon after the birth of their only child.
When his mother married Gerald R. Ford, Sr. in 1916, he adopted the
name Gerald R. Ford, Jr.


Do you think he would have EVER been a US President if he would have retained his birth name? Hmmm, makes me really wonder if people would ever vote for a Huckabee or a guy whose firt name is Willard?????

1. Try to keep a straight face
when you say out loud "President Huckabee". I couldn't do it.
