Skip to comments.Me, From Tennessee? Meet The Press Labels (Ford 'D-TN)'
Posted on 03/07/2010 9:03:36 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
Back in January, Harold Ford, Jr. proclaimed to Chris Matthews no fewer than four times: "I am a New Yorker" [see amusing video after the jump].
But that profession of Big Apple-hood apparently didn't cut it with NBC. Even as Ford was discussing today his reasons for not entering the New York Dem senatorial primary against Kirsten Gillibrand, Meet The Press displayed the graphic seen here, labelling Ford "(D-TN)."

Ford can’t even convince NBC he’s a New Yorker. Ping to Today show list.
Ford didn’t have any street cred!
LOL. I missed that. Thanks.
Just an honest opinion...other than moving to Alaska and trying to restart....I think NY is about the second worst choice for any political figure to move and try to run for office. Hillary was an exception.
Now if you asked me if Ford is finished on running for office...I don’t think so. Rangel might be out of the running shortly...and maybe that’s the best ticket to jump into.

I remember when RFK bought a little condo, or apartment, in NYC so he could run for senator as a 'New Yorker'. I seem to recall that he announced it on the Tonight Show w/ Johnny Carson (when Carson was still in NYC). I almost fell out of the chair laughing.
I suppose Ford is a 'life long Yankee Fan' as well.
Ford was delusional in thinking he could just jump in like
the other two!
His children or grandchildren will be considered “white”.
