  •  Are we sure 100th rank? (0+ / 0-)

    Franken, when seated, will have been elected to the Senate by the 2008 election in November. It's just taken an incredibly long time to count the ballots. Shouldn't his seniority come before Bennet, Gillibrand and even Burris, who were all appointed after the election?

    I don't know how the Senate will decide this, but it doesn't seem automatic that he's the lowest-ranking senator. And oh well, there's always 2010 for him to move up the ranks!

    Are you shaking or biting the invisible hand?
