With His Concession, Coleman Retains a Shred of Dignity
It’s worth considering what Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R-Minn.) and Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) have said about the possibility of today decision by the Minnesota Supreme Court. Back in March, Pawlenty speculated that Coleman might exhaust his appeals by autumn, suggesting a Supreme Court challenge. Cornyn said last week that he would support Coleman if he went that route. In the face of all of that, Coleman can look like he left the race gracefully despite the historic seven-month delay.
