I found the perfect person who can run for the senate seat that Al Franken will resign from.

He is a perfect candidate who will take over after Tina Smith gets some months in at the job of senator. Yes, after Tina, there will someone else. And he has "total" class.

He has experience, sense of humor, intelligence, kindness, and wit. Been around awhile, and has lots of real "class." While there might be some controversy about him running for this seat, he would make a great follow up to Tina Smith. And......The person to run for that seat, after Tina ,...is clearly.. well you know??........

.Al Franken...... who else??.....................................................
Al keeps his word about resigning, then returns in total victory after an incredible landslide!!!!!

Oh?... not possible?? ....Well stranger things have happened....Haven't they?

3. You got an an excellent alternative. I agree, he would show Trump or his replacemnt what "class" is.

4. I don't think he has ever shown the slightest interest in running for President.

Too bad, because he'd probably have made a good one.

But he is already 66, and we seriously need younger candidates. Plus, since he did choose to resign, you need to recognize that Republicans would have a total field day about his alleged sexual crimes.

6. "...he did choose to resign,..."

The more you say it, the more you believe it. Perfect baseless canard.

Republicans will have a "total field day" about ANYONE running against them in any race. It's who they are.

15. Ummm, he didn't fight back. Didn't refuse to resign.

Didn't confront the claims against him.

I am NOT saying those claims are true. Clearly they are not. But his resignation would be a permanent cloud of his candidacy.

Certainly, he does not seem to be slowing down at all at his age. But we need someone much younger as the candidate.

One of the things that bothered me a lot about the Clinton-Trump matchup (and would have bothered me even more about a Sanders-Trump matchup) was the age of both of them. Electing either one of them was going to be a step back from our first GenX President, Barack Obama.

It is very much time to pass the torch to a new generation.

13. I don't mind one bit that he's 66. If he were to choose a desireable VP candidate who was

more youthful, that would solve the perceived "age" problem. We've had some great dems as VPs!

(I doubt he'll run but seriously wish he would).

10. Agree with that. Our Dear Best Senator was neutered

with the help of our own party.

12. Democrats just wrote the ad for his opponent:

"Al Franken forced to resign from Senate following sex assault charges"

I doubt Franken will run for public office again

It is over. Let it go. I was unhappy too...but we must move on.
