Quote of the Day

"The young lady I'm looking about running against, Senator Gillibrand, who I know and like, she flipped on this and I might add President Obama is not in favor of marriage equality...So in some ways I have a better position than the president on this."Former Congressperson Harold Ford, who is looking to mount a primary challenge to New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, and thus seeking to shore up his liberal credentials.

The "young lady," Senator Gillibrand, is four years Ford's senior.
