Viewers Share Their Views of Tenn. Senate Race; Barack Obama

I hope you enjoyed the discussion with Rep. Harold Ford, Jr. and Mayor Bob Corker. They are running against each other in Tennessee for the Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Bill Frist. Many of you e-mailed me comments. Here are a few:

E-mail No. 1:

Harold Ford's lack of grace should not be tolerated by giving him airtime to explain it. It appears you don't see this matter objectively. Not a surprise. Very atypical for Fox.


E-mail No. 2:

I was very disappointed in your schmoozing with Congressman Ford. Actually, I am still watching the story unfold as I type. Obviously you know him and have a bias. BAD journalism!!!!


E.D. responds: My son went with me to DC when I interviewed both Sen. Frist and Rep. Ford for my book. My only bias is that I like people from Tennessee. When I have interviewed either man they always say hi to my son.

Sen. Barack Obama says he will decide after the Nov. midterms whether to run for president. Maybe he will and maybe he won’t. Keep in mind he is selling a book right now. Anyway, here are a couple e-mails representative of what people e-mailed me:

E-mail No. 1:

He appears to have his feet well planted in Patriotism and his head on straight. He certainly can talk-the-talk, but lacks the time and experience to walk-the-walk. In my opinion, he's not ready for 2008.

Bob, S.C.

E-mail No. 2:

I am listening to the democratic strategists who are saying that Obama would make a great candidate and my head is spinning. He would be a great president if you are in favor of high taxes, abortion clinics on every corner, and Jesse Jackson as secretary of state. This guy would be a colossal disaster. Am I missing anything?



Thank you all so much for watching.

Also, I appreciate the great story ideas from your local towns that you’ve emailed me. We’ve had a couple on the show already. Please feel free to contact me at

See you tomorrow.
