"Well, I think, er, for the next 29 months we could not have survived Nixon so at least we have somebody we can rally behind, and of course the elective process will take care of the next election - whether Ford proves himself or not - but I think we do have somebody we can rally behind at the moment:"
"He makes the motion about it - I have never liked the President - but, er, you know, I think it's a sad thing for the country - but I think it's the best thing for the country."
Q: "What d'you think of Ford?"
"Not much. I've got a very low opinion of Mr Ford, and, er, - but I think maybe he'll restore a little bit of confidence in government."
Q: "Would you have any criticisms of Nixon's foreign policy?"
"I don't know - what he mentioned was pretty sound - sounded good - I'm not a foreign policy exper??? but I would say he's done a fairly good job - thanks to I think, Kissinger."
Q: "Are you pleased about the news?"
"No, I'm very disturbed by it. I'm not happy about it at all. I'm sorry the man didn't admit guilt earlier - er, but I'm also sorry that he's quitting."
Q: "What good things has he done?"
"Oh, I think, er, the normalisation with China; the, er, escalation of relations with the Soviet Union, and things like that have long-term (indistinct)."
"If he gets it, then they should - there is no reason why some of the people should suffer, and have to go to prison, and have all these problems, and he gets off with just loss of office."
