Former Sen. Norm Coleman (R-MN), who is a potential candidate for governor of his state after he (very) narrowly lost the 2008 Senate race to Democrat Al Franken, has now taken a new job as a teaching fellow at Harvard’s Institute of Politics.
This doesn’t necessarily mean Coleman won’t run for governor, though, as he’s publicly set a timeline of waiting until Spring 2010 to make his decision.
As Dave Weigel points out: “Revenge! Norm Coleman to take Al Franken’s old job (sort of) at Harvard.” Years ago, Franken had a teaching fellowship at Harvard, which he used to research and write the book that made him a hero among liberal activists, Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them.
What’s next? Maybe a new book from Coleman: Al Franken Is A Big Fat Idiot.
