Coleman Concedes

Okay, this surprised me. I didn't expect it at all.

Mr. Coleman stepped outside his home just a short while ago to give his news conference. He indicated that he and Mr. Franken had a positive, personal talk and he told the Democrat that being senator was the “best job he’ll ever have.”

The Republican’s statement began this way: “Ours is a government of laws, not men and women. The Supreme Court of Minnesota has spoken and I respect its decision and will abide by the result. It’s time for Minnesota to come together under the leaders it has chosen and move forward. I join all Minnesotans in congratulating our newest United States Senator – Al Franken.”
Guessing either Pawlenty told the GOP he wasn't going to buck the polls and intended to certify or else the RNC decided they sank enough millions into a losing battle.

Of course, there are other theories...
Ha! ||RT: @GregMitch: Norm Coleman: Now I'll have to chance to take that trip I've long planned--hiking the Appalachian Trail.

Coleman's negative's can be eroded by the time the Minnesota governor's race comes around.
The public might forget that Pawlenty has taken Minnesota from a 600 million dollar surplus to a 5-1/2 billion dollar debt, by the time he has to run for President.
I think both of these guys will be in politics for a while.

Pawlenty will be fine. He's played it very cagey, staying out of the fray from what I can see. But Coleman is done in public office, IMO. I'm guessing he's on his way to K Street in the not too distant future.

With that haircut, he'd do fine on Sesame Street too.
