Harold Ford's Troubles

One of the most impressive figures in the Democrat firmament has been Harold Ford, Jr. I have often wondered, occasionally here, why he has not risen much farther and faster. This year he finally made his move and has decided to campaign for Bill Frist's Senate seat and in the process seems to have answered my questions. He seems to be unusually inattentive to the demands of his base constituents.

"Half-Bakered" notes that many Tennesse Democrats have been angered by Ford's snubs and that his candidacy may be in trouble as a result.

Read about it here. [Hat Tip, Instapundit]

Sad, Ford has been an impressive moderate voice from the Democrat side. I had high hopes for him.
