A Voice of Reason: Sane Views for a Crazy World

Harold Ford Signs a Deal With FOX

Ran across this post on Booker Rising.

I have to say this is a pretty good move by both FOX and Ford.  It will help them both.  FOX will gain an analyst who is a moderate Democrat, who has a viable voice, and fairly good credibility in a Conservative state, and also across much of the nation.  Having often heard former Rep. Ford’s commentary and analysis, he is no flaming liberal, and couldn’t have been as a member of Tennessee’s Congressional delegation, this will strengthen his standing with many constituency groups.  It also shows that he is not goose stepping to the rank and file of the DNC, in his willingness to enjoin himself to FOX.

This is a win-win.  A voice that deserves to be heard will give valid perspective in a national news outlet.  One can only wonder if this popular rising star in the Democratic Party will bring sense to the DNC, or if the polarizing Left elements will treat this once favored son as a turncoat.  Probably they will say nothing, but will continue their hypocritical two-stepping as they do on every issue of substance.

  2. More than likely. Similar to the way though that “some” in the GOP treat McCain.
