Harold Ford, Jr. Was "Shocked" That Potential Supporters Cared About His Political Positions

The New York Times has a delightful postmortem today about Harold Ford Jr.’s proto-failed senatorial campaign. Step one had been convincing people to vote for him instead of his opponent. This much he had known he had to do. And so, energized with votes of confidence from his fancy pals Ron Perelman and Steve Rattner, Ford traveled from city to city, fruitlessly trying to persuade people to turn on incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand: Rubén Díaz Jr., the Bronx borough president, told Mr. Ford between bites of an omelet at a diner near his office, ‘It’s difficult to make a strong case against her here.’ Ms. Gillibrand, he explained, had just secured $4 million worth of federal stimulus money to train his constituents for green jobs. Mr. Ford knew that some liberals would attack his relatively conservative voting record but, those he spoke with said, he was taken aback by the

Harold Ford Jr.: The Vanity Fair Interview

G.W. must admit that he saw it in Junior’s eyes as they sparred over a late breakfast at the Big Daddy Diner in Manhattan this January for V.F.’s April issue. But now it’s official. Harold Ford Jr.—the former Tennessee congressman and recent New York transplant who bears a striking resemblance to Derek Jeter—announced yesterday that he will not be pursuing Kristen Gillibrand’s Senate seat later this fall. Was his faux campaign all along just a publicity stunt so he could score a table at Per Se? Well, G.W. asked him just that—among other probing questions. Here is our conversation.

Colbert to Harold Ford: Hi, Flip-Flopper

Harold Ford Jr. got the coveted "Colbert bump" last night when he appeared on the Colbert Report to discuss his possible New York Senate run—but probably not in quite the way he expected. Colbert, who started off by noting that "evidently, six minutes at my interview table counts as New York state residency," implied the former Tennessee congressman is a bit of a flip-flopper when it comes to abortion and gay marriage. Colbert pointed out that, four years ago, Ford claimed to have been "not pro-choice at one time," but the politician wouldn't budge on that, insisting he's always...

Blood no boon to Rangel foe

Vincent Morgan has an uphill battle to unseat Harlem Rep. Charles Rangel -- he can't even get the support of his look-alike cousin, Harold Ford Jr., who is weighing a challenge against that other pillar of the Democratic Party establishment, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. Morgan's family tie to Ford had not been reported previously. But blood evidently isn't thicker than water in blue states. "Harold loves his cousin, but he supports The Dean [Rangel]," Ford's spokesman, Davidson Goldin, told Page Six yesterday. Morgan, 40, is the son of Harold's uncle, John Ford, the

Bum's Rush For H'wood Big

Rush Limbaugh irritated the many Democrats at junk-bond billionaire Michael Milken's annual conference in Beverly Hills Tuesday night -- especially John Landis. The "Animal House" director was standing in the back of the Beverly Hilton ballroom, next to Post correspondent David Finnigan, when the bombastic conservative graded President Obama "barely a D." Landis stuck his tongue out and loudly razzed the talkmeister and walked out. Obama got an A and an A- from the Democrats on the panel,
