Coleman's camp is pushing the idea of a new election. It's unlikely but not an impossibility.

And many who now realize their first time mistake of voting for Franken (we forgive you!)will vote for Coleman and we can move on with competent representation. And not be the laughingstock of the nation.

It's not enough Rush is on radio, now he's got the main print news source in Minnesota echoing Republican talking points. New election anyone? Who might the Strib endorse this time? Think their circulation will be helped by a juicy do-over news story? Does the Strib publisher think a do-over is indicated on the merits?

After the way Coleman has acted, people will vote for Franken. They need a man who has brains and is intelligent. Look at the way coleman sits and looks, totally incompetent in the courtroom. Coleman doesn't have bush to side with anymore.

We are having elections in seven months again so let's put these two on the ballot again. Obama is getting his way with congress now so there is no hurry.

Coleman is just a sore loser. Accept the fact that you lost and move on! They went though the recount and he still not happy and never will be. THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKE!

Whatever happened to common sense?? Any 8th grader could tell you that mathematically this is a tie and the system isn't accurate enough to figure out who won. So the ONLY fair way to settle this is to have another election with only these two. No Dean Barkley or anyone else to siphon off votes from one or the other. WHAT IS SO HARD ABOUT THIS? It is a very important to the State and the cost of a run-off election should not be an issue. We need to do it...no court can in good conscience declare either one of these bozo's a winner if they understand statistics. We have wasted enough time and money already to get nowhere. Have an election and while we are thinking about it......put a law in effect that recognizes that the process cannot determine a winner when the margin is this slim....so just do the run-off election and get it OVER....AAAARGH!!!!!!
