Harold Ford's Wife Emily Ford

Emily Ford: From Celebrity Stylist to Politician's Wife

It's not a good time to be a politician's wife. I think of the beleaguered Elizabeth Edwards and Jenny Sanford before the influential Michelle Obama and hypersuccessful Hillary Clinton. What do I never think of? What it must be like to be 29 years old and the wife of a potential senate candidate.

Emily Ford is married to Harold Ford, who probably is going after New York senator Kristen Gillibrand's seat this year. She grew up in Florida and moved to New York with the dream of becoming a fashion designer but instead became a stylist to stars like Renée Zellwegger and Jada Pinkett Smith. Now she's becoming a celebrity herself as her husband uses her as an asset to campaign. "Everything is all coming so fast right now," she said. "There is this momentum. It’s press, press, press.”

But she's not worried! "I have no skeletons in my closet," she told the New York Times. Guess she'll never write a book!

I used to have sympathy for Jenny Sanford, but not any longer. Mr. Sanford said outright that he would not take the fidelity part of the marriage vows. Jenny said that it raised red flags, but she went ahead because she was in love. Blech. We women can be powerfully stupid sometimes. I really hope that this young woman has a good head on her shoulders.
