But perhaps the best way for a senator to improve people's lives is to simply leave them alone.

wouldn't cowtow to the minority party. He would make sure the Dems use the fillibuster-proof majority to ram through public option health care. Ask yourself what the GOP would do with such a majority. I always admired Wellstone because you always knew what you were getting, unlike the current crop of sheep in the Democratic party. Here's hoping Al stays true to his word.

I'm one person he won't be improving the life of. Hold onto your wallets, it's going to be a bumpy ride!

This cloaking in the glory of others didn't work for Obama, it's not going to work here. Franken will be judged on his actions and if he attacks the populace like his predicessor, he'll be personally accountable for it in a similar fashion.

This win is a serious upgrade in intelligence for this seat. Finally someone who really understands the issues and wants to serve. And not just a guy looking for his next paycheck. Get a real job Norm!!!!
