Though he did manage to score a major victory on Thursday, for the most part the court battle over Minnesota’s senate race hasn’t been going well for former Sen. Norm Coleman. Though the Republican was the incumbent and ended Election Night with more votes than challenger Al Franken, the recount ended with the opposite result, and so far the judges’ decisions in the case don’t seem to indicate that Coleman’s lawsuit will end with his victory.
Even that might not finally bring closure to the race, however. Coleman is now talking about the possibility of holding a second vote, though he’s been careful not to actually call for one.
“[Y[ou know some folks are now talking about simply saying run it again, just run it again," Coleman said in a recent radio interview. "You know the St Paul Pioneer Press is...one of the second largest papers in the state, last week [they] said we’re never going to figure this out, just run it again. So you start hearing that… I got to believe next time this happens folks are going to say… if you have something within a couple of hundred votes out of three million cast, probably the best thing to do next time is run it again in three weeks and put all this other stuff aside.”

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
