The New York Times did a profile of the Tennessee Senatorial candidate. In true Times fashion they missed the point, leading the story with the effect a Ford win would have on the party balance in the Senate, instead of Ford's focus on issues over party loyalty.
To be fair to the Times, "winning back the Senate" or "keeping the Senate" have been the focus of both parties and seemingly all of our major politicians, so it makes sense that they would be stuck on this partisan nonsense. As for me, I am more interested in our politicians governing well, and I honestly believe that is what Harold Ford is all about.
