My Dream Realized?

herb the verb's picture

On Nov. 4 I had a dream that my vote would be the one vote that put Al Franken over the top, beating the odious Norm Coleman.

My dream is closer to reality than I could have hoped for:

"The Franken campaign reached yet another conclusion -- Franken ahead by four votes -- by including a projection on 6,655 ballots challenged by both campaigns."

It makes my shrivelled little black heart swell, just the tinniest of bits.

No votes yet

Franken in office. It's always amazing to me when elections like these between two diametrically opposed candidates come down to a handful of votes. It reminds me of 2000 when Al Gore seemed to make soooo much sense and Gov. Bush was a relative unknown and kind of a joke. Oh boy, were we wrong.

I would love to see Franken in the Senate and by a smidge, too.

I haven't been following this closely, but from the few reports I've seen on this, they always make it sound as if it'd be a miracle if Franken could pull this off. Are you being overly optimistic, or are they trying to shut out Franken?
