Rachel Maddow asks Gov. Tim Pawlenty if he'll sign the election certificate if the Minnesota Supreme Court rules in Al Franken's favor. Of course, true to form, Pawlenty hems and haws and makes excuses for why he can't answer that question right now.

Billmon at Daily Kos has an interesting diary up right now about why some in the GOP are rethinking whether making a federal case out of this is a good idea or not.
