    the polls say that it hurt Ford. but, I also think what hurt Ford was Ford. He didn't try to reach out to his base (which I would assume would be moderates and progressives). He didn't have to become a NE liberal to do that- it sounds like he just needed to give a little less speech about how much of a conservative he was, tried to come across as a little less slick, tried to be a little less abrasive, etc- the voters there, even here, amongst his supporters admit that these were issues he had. When I read the other diary, maybe I am wrong, but thats the issue that the diarist raised.
