This is something we must ponder. Al Franken would not concede the election as well as I remember and his election was pretty darn close. I think if it is that type of situation again, Obama will not concede if Romney is leading in the polls as the precincts close. If Obama doesn't concede, it will be that action alone that I believe will lead to riots in the bigger cities.

Neither will concede until it is obvious, after all results are in and calculated.

Franken's election was not the first, and won't be the last, that was challenged. This happens all the time in state elections.

There will be no rioting. Don't be a silly twit.

I think they will have to restrain Obama in a straight jacket to get him out of the white house. I don't know what will happen, but I'm afraid it won't be pretty.

Well, Al Franken won. So it was right of him not to concede.

Franken won by .0108%. I'm certain double-checking all the ballots was worthwhile.

Al Franken didn't concede because he knew his union meathead buddies were working hard creating a box of ballots that would be miraculously be found in the trunk of a car and put him over the top.

Franken Al stole.

OP why would you concede until every last vote is counted if you do not have to leave office for another two months.

Only thing I am concerned with if Romney wins is Obama screwing **** up even more in the last two months.

Will the Republicans act like they did in 2008 and refuse to seat the Democratic winner of the election (Franken) until the following summer?

Yep!

Franken hypnotized all those MN Supreme Court Justices appointed by Tim Pawlenty to rule that he had won! Then he hypnotized Tim Pawlenty to issue the certificate of election declaring him the victor!

LOL, you people are so pathetic... but very predictable!

Stupid, but predictable post. "Landslide Al" Franken did not concede because he won!
