User: President Ford pardoned President Nixon because: a. the U.S. Constitution mandates it c. he made a secret deal with Nixon b. he wanted to heal the nation d. it would guarantee a prison sentence

Weegy: At his Senate confirmation hearings to become vice-president, Ford had said that he would not pardon Nixon claiming that the country would never stand for it. [ At one of his first speeches as President, to the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Ford expressed the idea of forgiving those who had left the country instead of being drafted to serve in Vietnam. He also introduced the idea of a presidential pardon. By the end of August, Ford had decided to grant a full presidential pardon to Richard Nixon. Many argued against it saying it would capsize his presidency, but Ford refused to reconsider, saying that we needed to put Watergate behind us and move on. Ford's new press secretary, Jerry terHorst, resigned in protest over Ford's decision. To many it looked like a secret deal that Nixon would elevate Ford in return for an eventual pardon. That was one of the reasons I voted against Ford in 1976. I saw this as going against his word. He also had said that he wouldn't run for a presidential term of his own. He changed his mind on that in his first 90 days. He also needed to pick a vice-president of his own. He asked Nelson Rockefeller out of New York to become his vice-president. Rockefeller ran for the Republican nomination in 1968, and he left everything in New York to serve the Ford administration. Two years later, Ford dumped Rockefeller and made the more conservative Robert Dole his running mate. Years later, with hindsight, his pardon of Nixon was seen more favorably. Ford won a Kennedy Profiles in Courage Award. ]
