BREAKING NEWS: Harold Ford may be the show African/American Black in the Trump cabinet

Former Democratic Rep. Harold Ford, Jr., scion, former Tennessee Congressman, cable TV talking head  and son of the family of a long-serving Democratic congressman from Memphis,  is emerging as a possible contender for transportation secretary, or another Cabinet post, in Donald Trump’s budding administration.

Now a handsome Wall Street banker,  Ford endorsed Hillary Clinton but he and his wife are also close with Trump’s children, Don Jr., Ivanka, and son-in-law Jared Kushner, an associate said.

Reached on his cellphone, Ford dodged questions about his future in a Trump administration.  “I’m on vacation with my family,” he said when asked whether he has had any conversations about a Cabinet position such as transportation secretary. “I’d appreciate you calling me in the office on Monday.”
