Best call of 'em all

Former U.S. Representative, and failed U.S. Senate candidate, Harold Ford, Jr., aka Junior, recently announced that he won't be running for Tennessee governor next year:

Harold Ford Jr. ... has decided against running for Tennessee governor in 2010. He just put out a press release saying: "After long thought, consultation and prayer with my wife, Emily, I've decided now is not the right time to re-enter elected politics."

Not the right time, indeed. Given what happened in Tennessee '08 -- John McCain bested George W. Bush's '04 statewide performance, and Republicans gained complete control of the state legislature for the first time since Reconstruction -- tain't no way Junior could repeat his Senate-race performance. Indeed.
