Harold Ford Weighs In On Ground Zero Mosque

Missed this from yesterday, but here is a clip of Harold Ford giving the Democrats and President Obama political pointers on how to handle the Cordoba House question.
“If he believed that there is a right to build, but perhaps they should not build in that location, he probably should have just said that,” Ford said on the President’s maybe-yes-maybe-no response. “I think the follow-up has created some confusion and probably will create some consternation in political circles within the [Democratic] party.”
Of course, if Ford were now on in the midst of his own Senate bid, instead of hawking his latest book, his advice would carry a little more resonance.
