Harold for Jr.
AGE: 30 HEIGHT: 5 11'
MARITAL STATUS: Single
RESIDENCE: Memphis and Washington, D.C.
BIG BREAK: He gave the keynote address at last year's Democratic convention.
HOW HE GOT THERE: Ford was elected to Congress in '96 (six months out of the University of Michigan Law School); he replaced his retiring dad, Harold E. Ford Sr.
STAR QUALITY: Pal Jason Levien says being at the convention with Ford was "like traveling with Elvis. Even the cast of The West Wing wanted to meet him."
WHAT CANT BE MISSED: His "piercing, pretty green eyes," says Jennifer Baltimore, Ford's former fiancée. (The pair broke up last May yet remain close friends.)
GEEK HISTORY: Ford had braces for six years, until he was 19, and suffered from acne until recently: "I was running for Congress and had to put makeup on to cover it up."
