If you could have a beer with any US president from any time in history, who would it be? – Trish

For a beer? Ford, hands down. And yes, part of my answer is based on the episode of The Simpsons where he moves in next door and invites Homer over for drinks and nachos. But it’s mostly based on the book Write It When I’m Gone by Thomas DeFrank, in which Ford becomes one of the most candid ex-presidents of all time.
