Becase a remote regretful chance isn't good enough.

I only needed one more vote against Coleman to fill out my punchcard for a free mocha at Perkins...where I might now be served coffee by Coleman!

I got a phone survey regarding nuerous things but Norms name kept popping up in questions. I like Norm, but was sweet and sour on the question of him running for Gov. It appears the Tea Party is starting to grow roots. Good call Norm! Get out early and let a true conservative run.

As soon as I heard that the MN GOP was considering Norm I EMailed them to say they are nuts. Thank goodness Norm gave it up. I am ready for a true conservative to run not a RHINO Insider.

I guess he's finally stepping back to let the healing process begin.

and you may just get the moderate vote back. I was wondering when a Republican would figure this out.

...I would hope that he truly walks this talk. However, until he does and until he starts to call out GOPers engaged in "uncivil discourse", this will be words only and I will remain unconvinced that he means what he says. Ironically, I find it very funny that there are comments about Coleman being a RHINO when a huge chunk of the Minnesota GOP was holding back to support him if he did run.

Republican In Name Only. Now then, what does DFL really stand for? How about some suggestions!
