NY senate race

Can't say that I'm too enthused about Harold Ford's possible NY sentate run. I'm hardly a fan of Gillebrand, gun-toting Democrat that she is, but he's no better, being that he's associated with the "moderate" Democratic Leadership Council. Plus he's a total carpetbagger. So was Hillary, of course, but she was a Democratic superstar and had a pretty solid progressive pedigree. I understand concerns about Gillebrand's electability, but what does HF bring to the situation that she doesn't offer? To top it off, HF would be defying the White House's preferences, which is not at all wise. I can't see him (a black politician) alienating the WH and the first black president, not just during this campaign, but for his entire political career.
