Harold Ford to the DLC?
Radar Online is claiming to have the scoop that former Representative Harold Ford, Jr., the failed Democratic candidate for Senator from Tennessee, has accepted the chairmanship of the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC), that group of corporate toadies within the Democratic Party who prefer to be known as "centrists." Hillary and Bill are members.
And to think that only a couple of months ago I was congratulating the Democrats for having dodged the bullet of a successful Ford candidacy! Well, if he must assume a public position, the DLC is just the right spot for him. That organization's influence within the party appears to be steadily declining, so Ford at the helm should expedite the process. I just hope he doesn't steal the silver.
