    But I actually love Harold, I do. I am in Missouri and Ford and I are a like on a lot of issues (no flames please). I am a centrist.Sorry everyone to the left of me.

    If I could talk my husband into it, I would move to tennessee in a minute. I hope he runs again.

    And while I was not a supporter of Dean in 2004 (I supported Clark, I have embraced him as party chair and think that Harold could use his resouces elsewhere and shore up a campaign for Alexander's seat in 2008.

    Great diary, keep up the good fight.

    p.s. Why do I feel like I have to apologize for being a centrist?

      I love Harold Ford, Jr.  I love his family too.  Granted some of them are a little crazy but they love serving people.  Contrary to what some believe his uncle John is the sweet man but the media has continued to bash him.  Yes, John Ford has problems, "ye without sin, cast the first stone" but he is a good man.  Harold Ford, Jr. is NOT A FLAMING LIBERAL!  Most of the Country isn't.  Just like most of the Country is not STIFF-NECKED CONSERVATIVES!  There is a happy medium and Congressman Ford found it.  Anything else is just a waste of time.  As quite as it's kept, MOST African-Americans are socially conservatives.   So Congressman Ford was in lock set with his base and his race.  As quiet s it's kept alot of Republicans VOTED for Congressman Ford.  His father is a visionary and taught his son very well.  Harold, Sr. didn't want Harold, Jr. to live like he had to be confrontational when it came to race, and Harold Jr. has lived in a colorless world as much as he possibly could. I live in Memphis, yea I might be bias.  I worked for two of his uncles, one that past away in 2001, and I work with one now who is the most incredible man I know who is not related to me or a member of my faith.  I hope he runs in 2 years I will vote for him again and again and again.

      Those who continue to bash Congressman Ford need to look within yourselves and find the answers to the questions.
