Humor and the Presidency is autobiographical, but it also presents ex-United States President Gerald Ford's ideas linking together one's capacity to lead with one's capacity to laugh at oneself. In a collection of essays, Ford explains how humor has eased his way through the political process and has made him a more popular figure. Ford points out that although he may not generate the humor as comedians do, he serves the important role of being the target of others humorous creativity. Included are political cartoons spanning American history from Thomas Nast to Pat Oliphant.
