Praise For Congressman Ford Widespread

Yesterday on the blog, I reported on two events in which Congressman Ford gave the keynote addresses: the Elizabethton high school graduation and the Truman Day Dinner.

Below are some very positive comments I have saw on the internet regarding these two speeches.

The Truman Day Dinner:

"The star of the evening was U.S. Rep. Harold Ford Jr. of Memphis, the presumed Democratic nominee for the U.S. Senate to succeed Majority Leader Bill Frist. Ford ended up being the keynote speaker after U.S. Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware couldn't attend."

"Ford was stopped by so many people on his way from outside the center that he missed a VIP reception that cost attendees $100 per person.

"I haven't heard any complaints," said Jeffrey Gleeson, county party treasurer."

The Elizabethton High School Graduation:

"Ford gave one of the best speeches I've heard in a long while. He received a roaring standing ovation at the end. I witnesses greatness in Elizabethton..."

What else can we say but people love our next Senator!
