Biden, Clinton Among Hundreds Who Honor Ford
By The Associated Press
OWENSBORO, KY - Former Kentucky governor and U.S. Sen. Wendell Ford is being remembered for his ability to get things done at the highest levels of government without compromising his love for his state or its people.

Vice President Joe Biden and former President Bill Clinton were among the hundreds of people who filled the First Baptist Church of Owensboro for Ford's funeral Tuesday. Biden hailed Ford as the rare politician who could listen to and understand people's problems while Clinton credited Ford with wrangling enough votes in the Senate to pass some of the legislation that defined his presidency.

Ford died Thursday at his home in Owensboro. He was 90. He is the only Kentuckian to win consecutive terms as lieutenant governor, governor and U.S. senator.
