Okay, Maybe a Little Genius …

TPM Reader MH on Franken …

I think you can’t say that Franken’s only genius in the recount was being ahead. Almost equally as passive, Obama-like even, was the genius of his staying out of the way while the Minnisota election process worked. I’ve watched the coverage fairly closely and my impression has been that Franken did a remarkable job of appearing humble and patient in the midst of maddening conditions. While Coleman pushed and struggled and insulted the system, Franken seemed to let it run its course. I do think he deserves credit for that.

No Drama Franken?
