NORM COLEMAN CONCEDES MINNESOTA SENATE RACE TO AL FRANKEN
That the people of Minnesota voted for that ex-funny comedian to represent them as their US Senator does not change the basic essential nature of the United States Senate when it comes to voting blocs or resulting politics.
On the other hand, if Conservatives did seek to eventually establish a majority within the US Senate, or even allow politically Conservative Minnesotans to be adequately represented from the state to that particular federal legislative house, then it would have been a better assertion and protection of candidate principle if Senator Coleman had fought a better campaign up until November 2008. I am certain people are asserting that the Democrats stole this election but given the make-up of the Senate now I cannot say that I care. If I was to dictate expenditures for a Conservative majority voting bloc in the Senate then this matters.
