Remember the election?
It was way back in November, but the state of Minnesota doesn't appear to be much closer to having a final winner in its contentious Senate race.
CNN's John Lisk talks to CNN Deputy Political Director Paul Steinhauser about what happens - or doesn't happen - from here.
Listen to the latest CNN Radio Political Notebook:
My God, Norm – Let it go! Not only does no one else in the country want to hear from you anymore, you're giving FAR too much attention to Minnesota. Seriously, does anyone really care what the representative from Minnesota has to say anyway????
This is ridiculous!! If the shoe were on the other foot, Norm Coleman and the Republican Party would be going "all out" to end this now. They are such hippocrites!! Norm Coleman needs to concede and move on (he would have told Franken the same if the roles were reversed).
Also, the Republican party should be ashamed of themselves for letting this go on – the people of Minnesota are the ones who are the losers in this. They deserve representation – not a "sore loser" like Coleman. He's like a spoiled child who doesn't get his way.
m: You may think that Franken is qualified because he is a scholar graduate, then why be a comedian of all things, think I could make better living than that. Especially now, and you want him in office. He would just be good for a fillabuster.
This must come to an end now, Franken has won and should be allowed to represent his state in the senate!
It just goes to show how Democrats know how to bow out, Al Gore in 2000, if they lose and Republicans will do anything to steal an election.
I am an Independent voter and have voted for both parties but after this mess it only makes me lose faith in the GOP.
They need to step aside and let the voters voice be heard.
What are you talking about???
They are just now finishing the ECC Court Case by a three judge panel determining the outcome of the recount between the two. Both sides have rested and its now closing arguments.
Thus far it looks clear that Coleman doesn't have a chance in hell of preventing Franken from being the next Senator from that state. Coleman's team of attorneys have been inept to the point of obstructing Franken from being certified as Senator.
Seth – Qualified? That's your argument against Franken? The people voted for him and he is leading the recount even in the Election Court case. Give it a rest Seth.. he won and Coleman lost... end of story.
My God, can we just decide this already? This is complete BS. And we are down one Senator in the Senate. This is good for the country? More GOP obstructionism – even if the Coleman camp KNOWS they lost, they are willing to fight a long legal battle simply because it will keep one more (D) from casting a vote in the Senate.
Let Franken in. It's minnesota, they're used to morons in government up there.
Wow. Coleman need to move on, seriously.
A lot to do about nothing
a man's gotta feed his family.
I'm for one senator, two votes
I seriously doubt Seth could make a better living than Franken, based solely on literacy.
My gosh, does CNN post any comments not against Coleman? Franken was an average comedian at best, which is why I am a bit confused as to where he pulled this continuing gag from! In an election where continual revelations seem to expose this as a worse fraud than Kennedy v Nixon, I am wondering why we have yet to find the cows and corpses voting. Then again, I think the only problem CNN would have with that is the fact that finding a cow with good diction and a corpse that wouldn't look to much like Anderson Cooper is too difficult. This is obviously a joke election in the minds of the Minnesota judiciary and the democratic party, or else they would not be pulling these stunts. Luckily for them, the same people who picked the GOP platform and candidate pool over the past decade or so also found Coleman's lawyers so Franken is safe and Minnesota is doomed to bad leadership from a mentally corrupt windbag whose inflated ego and bipolar rants will only fit in too well in an already bloated and Washington. I would say that Minnesota deserves this because they voted for it, but we will never really know since they have now made Florida look like the model for a recount!
I say keep going Norm! The last thing you want to have happen is what happened here in WA state 4 years ago. The GOP won the first count, then the recount, only to have the election stolen on a third recount. All the courts, which the Dems have owned for decades, were more than eager to certify those election results.
Don't let them do it to you too Norm! Keep up the good fight!
Norm...I suggest getting some advice on how to move on from Al Gore. He 'gets it' that George Bush stole the election of 2000.
Given a chance to re-elect Coleman, more than 50% of Minnesotans said "No."
