Former Tennessee representative, Harold Ford, is talking all macho and stuff about not being afraid of Chuck Schumer in entering into the New York Democratic primary to challenge Kirsten E. Gillibrand. What is it with these Democratic leaders? First they pressure David Paterson not to run for governor and now they don't want Harold Ford to try to run against Gillibrand. Imagine what people would be saying if the GOP leaders were pressuring prominent black politicians not to run against white politicians.

that the administration is trying to avoid some potentially damning details becoming public from the report on what intelligence agencies knew about Nidal Hasan before he went on his murderous shooting rampage at Fort Hood.

Just more failure to connect the clearly visible dots.
