Harold Ford on Steve Cohen and the Congressional Black Caucus 

Tucker Carlson had the new chairman of Democratic Leadership Council, Harold Ford Jr., on his show Monday night. Ford tap-danced around a number of softball political questions regarding his preference for Obama or Hillary, race and gender in politics, and other subjects.

Carlson then turned to the recent brouhaha regarding Ford's 9th District successor in Congress, Steve Cohen, and Cohen's spurned attempt to join the Congressional Black Caucus.

Carlson asked pointblank whether or not Cohen should have been admitted to the CBC. Ford's response, "Uh, look, Tucker, I'm not in Congress anymore ... " More tap-dancing ensued. An answer to the question did not.

Watch it here.
