BOB CORKER WON, but it was closer than the polls suggested. This suggests that Mickey Kaus was right, and that Tennesseans were more embarrassed to tell pollsters that they were voting for a Democrat, as opposed to the conventional wisdom that people lie about their willingness to vote against a black candidate.

A.C. Kleinheider credits Ford with a gracious concession speech and notes that Ford ran a great campaign until his stumbles at the end. I have to agree. I suspect we’ll be hearing from Harold Ford, Jr. again.
