Tennessee's Harold Ford, Jr. is running a quiet but effective campaign for Bill Frist's Senate spot, according to this excellent post at a Washington Post blog.
There is no active politician I like more than Representative Ford. I mean that. If I wasn't trying to buy a house right now, I would contribute money to his campaign.
Don't take my word for it, go read his campaign website. If there is a future for the Democratic party, Harold Ford, Jr. is it.
