NEW YORK TIMES: FLOATING A FORD CANDIDACY IN NEW YORK. He’s a smart guy, and perhaps better suited for New York, where his family baggage matters less, than Tennessee, where it’s well known. Of course, but for his airport meltdown/confrontation with Bob Corker I think he would have been elected in Tennessee — it was very close.

Our Harold Ford, Jr. podcast interview is here.

UPDATE: Reader C.J. Burch writes: “They have done a lot worse than Ford in the past and could do worse than Ford now. He ain’t perfect, but look at who is representing that state now. Any way you cut it he’s a step up from that.”
