Stewart Saves Minnesota - Franken to Run For Senate
We can only hope he is a better politician than he was a comedian.
Minnesota Democrats have thrown their support behind comedian Al Franken in a race for U.S. Senate that will pit him against Republican incumbent Norm Coleman.
Franken, who wrote and performed for "Saturday Night Live," told Minnesotans on Saturday that he is "not a perfect person."
"I'm not going to pretend to have all the answers," he said. "But I'll tell the truth, I will keep my spine, and I will work for you."
