Vultures Circling

The Hill reports that K Street lobbying firms are looking over the losers in Tuesday's elections in order to identify good prospects for positions. Tennessee's Harold Ford, Jr. is said to be high on their wish list.

Read about it here.

Though it is not discussed in the article, one factor that helps to open up Ford's opportunities is the fact that Washington lobbying firms that have been oriented toward appealing to Republicans since Tom Delay instituted his K Street project will now be looking for known Democrats in order to connect with the new leadership in Congress. Ford is perhaps the most prominent Democrat who lost.
