Give Al more time to pay his taxes and work on porn.

I don't think Coleman has any input in this - it has been taken over by the GOP and as usual thay call the shots and Norm just does as he is told - just like the last 6 years

Once again, I’d like to remind Norm Coleman of his own words: If you asked me what I would do, I would step back. I just think the healing process is so important. The possibility of any change of this magnitude in the voting system we have would be so remote — that would be my judgment. Mr. Franken will decide what Mr. Franken will do. Norm, your final act can either be principled, or it can be like the rest of your Senate career

The process was open and fair, it's time to seat Al. If Norm wants to pursue this going forward, that's his right and purgative, but we need two Senators.

It costs the taxpayers time and money for these senseless appeals. It would be nice if Coleman would do the decent thing and give up. I'm guessing , however, that Coleman plans to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court in hopes that the conservative majority there will rule for him whether he deserves to win or not. This has become so sad. I supported a full and fair recount. That seems to have been done and Coleman should do the right thing and concede.

Does there ever come a time when it finally isn't up to the candidate to continue this circus? Coleman will continue to push on as long as he is able to - which you can't blame him - and this could go on indefinitely. I don't know a whole lot about the legal aspect of this situation, but we (Minnesotan's) should be able to say "enough"!
