Harold Ford takes a page out of the Martha Coakley playbook
When the Boston Globe asked Martha Coakley whether her campaign hadn't been a bit too passive, it wasn't a great idea for Coakley to spit back, "As opposed to standing outside Fenway Park? In the cold? Shaking hands?" Uh, yeah. As opposed to those things. And when the New York Daily News asked Harold Ford for an interview, it probably wasn't wise for him to demand these terms:
The interview – granted under the condition that the questions be limited to his rationale for running, and not issues – comes at the end of a rocky first week of buzz surrounding his potential candidacy.
In the interview, Ford responded to questions about the pedicures he mentioned to The New York Times by saying, "This race isn't about feet, it's about issues." Which he won't talk about. Oy.
