Ford Heads DLC & Steele Heads GOPAC

Former Tennessee congressman Harold Ford, Jr., left, is now Chairman of the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC), one of the leading Democratic think tanks in the country. In a recent email to his friends and supporters, he writes: "It is my hope to offer an agenda of national purpose that works toward reviving the American Dream, providing affordable health care to all those who seek it, energy independence over the next decade, balancing our budget and tackling entitlement reform and bringing peace and stability to Iraq and the Middle East."

Former Maryland lieutenant governor Michael S. Steele, right, is the new Chairman of GOPAC, a national education and training center for Republican candidates and activists. Steele succeeds former Oklahoma congressman J.C. Watts, Jr. He will launch a public affairs firm, Legacy Strategies and he intends to write a book. The Ehrlich/Steele administration passed good legislation to protect the Chesapeake Bay and a good clean air bill.
