WHAT DID IMUS KNOW?

from The Hotline

Before news of [Sen. Fred] Thompson's retirement leaked out, Rep. Harold Ford Jr. (D-09) appeared on "Imus" this a.m. and here's Imus's first question: "What is the potential of you becoming a senator by the way? Good or 50/50 or what?"

Ford: "It's up to the voters here. If they promoted me, I'd take it."

Imus: "If it was up to us, you'd be one now. Then we wouldn't have to suffer the humiliation of actually having to have a congressman on here."

Ford [laughing]: "I appreciate you compromising your standards to have me on."

Imus closed the interview with: "Congressman Harold Ford, who one would hope would soon be a senator so we can all feel better about having him on" (MSNBC, 3/8).
