    Nope. I was here. I followed it. I watched the vote margin slowly shrink. The political climate here is pretty evenly split between the parties statewide.

    If anything strikes me as fishy, it's how Coleman called for Franken to waive his right to a recount. It sounds like he had very little confidence that his lead would hold.

    Nope. This had everything to do with county commissioners finalizing their tallies and the automatic recount being done with people from both campaigns present at many locations statewide (we have 87 counties where votes would be tallied). The challenges were reviewed by a government agency, described in detail here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elections_in_Minnesota

    And as far as I can tell, there never had been any ACORN chapters in Minnesota.

    Coleman had the lead until sometime during the challenged ballot process, and he had actually made the most ballot challenges. Franken withdrew around 2900 challenges while Coleman withdrew around 2400.

    Minnesota was one of those battleground states. Though the race we were watching was the Senate seat for that year. I had actually voted for the third party candidate in that race. Most of our statewide seats are drawn out battles, usually with the Democrat winning.

    I know I personally was fully behind Obama after McCain chose Palin for his VP.

    Didn't choosing Palin for his VP also hurt his chances?

    Human minds tend to play mind tricks on themselves. It happens.

    I am saddened yet pleased by this news. Her being chosen for the ticket would have practically gift-wrapped Obama a second term, but I shudder to think what would have happened if she did become president.

    It certainly was from long ago.

    I don't recall saying that. You might be attributing someone else's viewpoint to me. I am not convinced it would curb corruption.

    Something I'm fairly against, personally. Among other things, keeping police in the public eye certainly makes them have to be accountable for their subordinates's actions in areas where the chief of police is elected.

    Well the point I had probably made was that a lot of the libertarians I had seen on the public stage and encountered in person were basically just anti-tax and pro-gun rights, and quite against extending those rights to those who don't affiliate with a religion or believe in a higher power as well as gays.
