Harold Ford Jr. on This Week 

Yes, that was Harold Ford Jr., our former congressman, doing spin-‘n-grin along with Cokie and George and George on ABC’s This Week Sunday morning. Ford held his own with the regular panelists.

Among other observations, he praised new Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and General David Petraeus (about to head the surge program in Iraq), and he advised his fellow seers not to write off the future presidential chances of — Florida governor Jeb Bush.

He also drew several fond — and, we presume, motherly — smiles from Cokie Roberts. Will he be a permanent fixture on the show? We’ll stay tuned to find out.
