Al Franken's office has been reaching out to a lot of folks this evening making the point that Sen. Franken refused to let Sen. Lieberman go over his alloted 10 minutes
because he was under strict instructions from the leadership to keep everyone to the clock so that they don't run out of time to get this thing done before Christmas. When I was reading Joan Walsh's post
about the brouhaha, I noticed that the leader she got from Franken's office came from Communications Director Casey Aden-Wansbury. That struck me as kind of funny since Aden-Wansbury used to have the same job for another senator by the name of Joe Lieberman.
