    Certifying the election shouldn't take much past 10 am tomorrow morning when the Sec reads the papers. 5% is a mandate. Nothing left to discuss.

    The Democrats should pull a "Coleman" and do everything they can to block Brown from being seated, even if it includes taking it to the Supreme Court.

    Why not? The Rethuglicans don't deserve any better.

    If the tables were turned, as they were in MN, the Democrats would get their lawyers and take him to court for several months so he couldn't be seated. However, the Democrats like to play a little bit fairer.
