WASHINGTON (CNN) - Senator-elect Al Franken will meet with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and be sworn in Tuesday, according to Reid's office.

Franken has been assigned suite 320 in the Hart Senate Office Building, the same office used by former Minnesota Sen. Norm Coleman, who conceded the race earlier this week.

    Hey Al, I held my nose and voted for you because the other two running were the real clowns (especially Coleman). I had my doubts about you due to lack of experience and your past tendency to act like a GOPer when it came to divisiveness, but I am taking you at your word that you are humbled. I think you can be a great senator for us if you lose the attitude and reach out to those reasonable folks farther to the right on the spectrum. Here's hoping you'll make us proud!

    If it is possible for the Democrats to be embarassed by a fellow Dem, this guy should do it. He makes stupid people look smart. I love how some Dems are claiming he is smart by pointing out he graduated from Harvard. Funny how these same Dems did not say Bush is smart because he graduated from Yale.
