Beside the the Presidency, this election mattered to me most. Franken will be a great Senator. He's the real deal, honest, fair, liberal and proud of it.

Franken gained his advantage as the board weighed challenges by the Coleman campaign. But as many as 5,000 withdrawn challenges from both campaigns won't be awarded until Monday, and the lead could change again.

I get the impression that Franken is genuine in his concern for working Americans. He'll do well in the senate.

Yes indeed. Despite his style of comedy on SNL years ago, I consider him to be quite intelligent, honest and sincere, exactly what we need in the Senate - and from both sides of the aisle.

I have heard everything now. That election definitely has been stolen if Franken "wins". To top all of that off, Franken sucks the big one. I don't much like the Republican either but he is much better than Franken could ever hope to be.

I don't live in that state and if I did I probably would not have voted for either one. It sure would be nice if you libs would at least get your facts straight about people that post in here. Unlike you and many others in here, I am an Independent and don't like either major party. I can think for myself.

Watching the liberals cheer Franken gives me the same nauseating feeling that I would get if Limbaugh was running for office. Same brand of crap, different delivery man.
