    We all know he has ZERO chance of being President. No need to waste time with that.

    The most he can hope for is pundity and lobbying, unless a VP nomination comes around. He's got no chance of beating Klobuchar in 2012.

    For the forseeable near future, I expect him to be a light as a feather. Hell, there was nothing really to him anyway.

    •  if that's all he's going for, (2+ / 0-)

      then forget the certificate for Franken. He'll make a whole lot more money as a pundit if he refuses to sign anything that will help a Democrat. That will open him to a lucrative career as a fox news pundit or regnery author. I hope he has other electoral aspirations although I don't wish him any success. If he has to have some regard for the other side in order to achieve electoral success, that's at least something. Achieving success as a pundit, the less accountability to differing opinons the better, as the examples of limbaugh and gingrich have shown.
