FL 2000 = MN 2008

AP calls MN for Norm Coleman AP un-calls MN for Norm Coleman.

Ug, with all the amazement and emotion last night this race is a real downer. Normally, if Franken loses, OK. It was a hard race to win. But possibly lose by under 1,000 votes? That would be really painful. And the recount wont even start for a few weeks, and we might not know anything until December. Staying up late last night, listening to WCCO radio (last news org in the room), watching TV, and manically hitting "refresh" on CNN/CBS/ results map/MN Sec. of State results page - I had dejavu of watching Florida go insane in 2000.

Lets hope that doesn't happen again here.
