ford on msnbc

I caught Harold Ford Jr.'s interview on MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews. Ford just got back from Iraqi and Afganistan and offered up some insightful points - we may be facing growth in insurgents in Afganistan; that we don't need to withdraw our troops prematurely or our kids and grandkids may have to go back years from now to finish the job; and that we desparately need an oil plan in this country. He also talked the threat from Iran and how diplomacy needs to be tried first before anything else. All straight forward, common sense views.
