Harold Ford’s consolation prize for making a strong run for Bob Corker’s Senate seat: the chairmanship of the Democratic Leadership Council. A solid choice, I think.
Has Harold Ford ever actually LIVED in Tennessee?
Yes, although mostly in DC. Not that it much matters for the DLC gig.
That’s what I meant.
Another “inside the beltway job” for someone “from” Tennessee.
Like all those congressmen who lose and then never go back to their beloved homes.
Well, Congressmen build a network and skill set that’s mostly useful in the Beltway. Having a lot of contacts in Washington doesn’t really do you much good in Memphis.
In any Howard Dean, M.D./Harold Ford battles I’ll be siding with the latter who’s sane and a Democrat who’s not all about Bush bashing.
