Rachel Maddow Asks Tim Pawlenty If He'll Sign The Election Certificate For Franken If MN Supreme Court Rules In His Favor

You Tube

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. Rachel points out the obvious: The pressure's being put on him by John Cornyn, who's rubbing his hands together in delight at the thought of tying up the Democrats from having another seat in the Senate indefinitely.

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.
