Franken vs Coleman: the final showdown

The Minnesota Independent posted a contrast piece yesterday on the dueling press conferences that followed from the Supreme Court ruling there that pronounced Al Franken the state's new senator. The decision came after eight months of recount madness and a series of related lawsuits filed by now-former senator Norm Coleman. Coleman held his press conference in the backyard of his St Paul home and threatened to call the police on journalists he didn't want to attend. Franken stood on his front stoop in Minneapolis and laid a table of snacks for the reporters attending.
