Is Harold Ford Sr. "the Way Forward" for Ford (and GM and Chrysler)? 

Since he left the U.S.House of Representatives in 1997, having turned the active political part of the family business over to his son Harold Jr., former congressman Harold Ford Sr. has resided in Florida and done mucho commuting between there and Washington, where he maintains a lucrative lobbying business.

His latest client? As The Hill, an insider newsletter in D.C. puts it, “The Automobile Dealers Consortium hired The Harold Ford Group to ‘provide assistance with identifying and securing financial assistance for several automobile dealers in order to remain solvent during the recent nationwide economic downturn,’ federal lobbying records show.”

How does that old slogan go? “Ford’s got a better idea.” Well, he better.
