Harold Ford Faces Off Against Daily Kos Founder on "Meet the Press" 

Former 9th District Congressman Harold Ford was put up against liberal blog maven Markos Moulitsas today on Meet the Press.

This is how the Kos folks saw it: "[host David] Gregory began by asking Ford about his recent warning against the Democratic Party 'lurching to the left,' and right out of the gate, Ford demonstrated why he isn't a United States Senator today:

"First, you have to demonstrate your strength and trustworthiness on national security. [stay the course] You have to demonstrate that your values are squarely in the mainstream of America. [God, guns and gays] And, three, you have to demonstrate as a Democrat that you can be trusted on taxes, economic and fiscal policy. [back George Bush's tax cuts]

"Otherwise, according to Ford, 'we run the risk of being so excited and enthusiastic,' that we will lose. Presumably that is in reference to us crazy, lurching leftists."
