What do you think of Ford?
He's a purely political animal. The very definition, even.
He's extremely handsome, well-mannered, has an appealing personality, very smart, and can speak convincingly. Having said that, he should be the GOP's worst nightmare.
But he's not.
The Dems don't realize that personal and political ambition can override one's loyalty to a political party. Their snubbing of him and the late Maynard Jackson could very well bite them in the butt.
