The Politicians Wife Claims No Baggage By LAURA M. HOLSON February 10, 2010
SINCE early January, when Harold E. Ford Jr. announced he was considering a bid for a Senate seat from New York, his wife, Emily Ford, has been hounded. Her friends call almost daily to ask if she has read the latest gossip about the couple. Mr. Ford cant seem to stop talking about his wife, either, recently telling a columnist that he walks her favorite Chihuahua, Fabby. Emily Ford [Pic in URL] steels herself for a rough ride as Harold E.
WELL PREPARED? Emily Ford was a publicist for designers. Politics is going to be easy for her, Mario Grauso said. So it is no wonder that last week, the normally publicity-shy Ms. Ford tucked into a corner table of a cafe near Gramercy Park and expressed surprise that there is so much interest in her. I have no skeletons in my closet, Ms. Ford, 29, said while picking at a muffin.
(snip) Ms. Ford, dressed in a powder blue J. Crew sweater, jeans and a mottled Nina Ricci scarf, looked less like a possible senators wife than an eager legislative aide, someone she said she was once mistaken for at a political event with her husband. She supports Mr. Fords ambitions, but she has interests of her own. Now working at home as a marketing consultant, she recently held one of the fashion industrys glamour jobs, dressing celebrities for the red carpet on behalf of the designer Carolina Herrera.

Harold Ford in front of the Confederate Battle Flag could be a problem for him with lots of Dems.
What is it with carpet bagging Democrats going to New York to run for office there? Are they too liberal for their real home states?
Does anyone, anymore, think that Senators and Representatives are supposed to be from the places from which they are elected?
Ford said that after his losing Senate election bid in his real home state, he had moved to New York and was working there. So, he’s saying that he really lives in New York, and didn’t move there to advance his political career.
Historically, New York voters don’t care if their Democrat Senator is from New York.
Post a picture of his mother. That might explain his taste for white women.
Tough to get the vote from the Sistahs with a white wife.
So their offspring will be, like, nearly all white? That has got to be troubling for the NAACP... loosing members by breeding.
Just like family: From left, Debbie Beard, her daughter Emily Threlkeld and future mother-in-law Dorothy Bowles Ford, at a tea party that Ford threw in honor of Threlkeld. (Amy Argetsinger - The Washington Post)
Do you mean this?
Once you go white, right Harold?
Forget about his wife for a moment. I wonder if NY voters know anything about his crooked family record in Memphis and Tennessee politics.
Sorry to say...his wife doesn't.
He is not his father’s son. That was his mother’s gift to him.
He has more Caucasian ancestry than African. It’s pretty obvious - just look at him.
What a bunch of hooey! Another pretty face, one that doesn’t need a teleprompter, but just another empty Armani suit.
Memory says he bought some Armani suits out of his campaign money. He never met a tax HIKE he didn’t vote for, a useless spending program he didn’t vote for, he is anti-2nd amendment...need I say more? He talks like a moderate votes like his idol obambi. In fact JR is a obambi clone, just doesn’t need a teleprompter.
Harold Ford Jr.:
I see a certain resemblance ...
