Every time I see this gentleman he impresses me tremendously. I hope he wins Bill Frist's seat in the United States Senate and does a better job for that state and this country than his predecessor.
Does anyone else think that Congressman Ford might be a rising star in the Democratic Party?

Ford's okay, but he's got too many conservative leanings on some positions for the Democratic party on the whole.
Plus he's got family issues- the Fords are a tad on the crooked side, and the last thing the Dems want is another deal where he's hounded endlessly over ticky-tacky stuff that his dad or uncle did.
He's got a definite future, especially if he wins this time around, but probably not going to be a superstar in the long term, IMO.

It's good to see that you were not involved with that horse/man relationship, in which the fellow had his insides 'screwed' up, pardon the pun. We were worried about you there for a while.

He is not a bad guy, I just find him a moral lightweight. For example, he should acknowledge at some point that Playboy, to a certain degree, trades on the objectification of women and the lower appetites of our people. He doesn't have to say that he is sorry for going to the party, but he can still validate the concerns of people who think that supporting Playboy is a morally suspicious activity.
Lower appetites of people. Is that what men liking to look at women is called nowadays? I know they objectify women, but it's not Hustler and the women aren't forced. Our whole society objecifies women.
Maybe that's because it's natural and good to like to look at women?
Maybe that's because sex is natural and good. Not a 'sin'.
I'm sorry, what is it that Playboy does that is 'bad' again?

It's why we don't appreciate Peeping Toms or oglers. As to posing for Playboy being voluntary, in theory, so is prostitution, but I'm not in a hurry to smile upon the practice. There aren't too many 10 year old girls who want to grow up and be a nudy model, and there aren't too many parents who want their daughter to be a pin-up girl, which makes me think that the lion's share of these girls are moved into the trade as a matter of economic necessity rather than dignity. It's not all bad, and I'm sure that to a lot of the girls, when they do a cost benefit analysis, find the money is worth it, and it's just another job, but the industry is tainted enough such that it should give good people, and good politicians reservations.
Stripping can't be any worse than telephonically invading household after household after household after household after household after household after household after household after household after household after household after household after and working hard to make them like you long enugh complete a survey.
And it DEFINITELY pays better.
I say: don't look at strippers if ya don't wanna, but that's no reason to look DOWN on them.
