Harold Ford's Immigration Ad

U.S. Representative Harold Ford (D-Tenn.) has a great campaign ad on the subject of immigration. It is very convincing and is the single best ad that I have heard among those who are running for the Senate seat that is being vacated by Bill Frist. Ford's prior ads were utterly ridiculous. In one of them, he accuses President Bush of "giving away" the ports to another country or some such nonsense. In another, he whines and complains about gas prices and CEO compensation - a sure appeal to the ignorant and easily manipulatable masses. Maybe someone told Ford that the CEO of Exxon was not a candidate for the Senate. In any event, Ford is getting in front of the immigration issue and it will be a big issue in this election.
