Franken not running

After much speculation, Al Franken, host of a radio show on Air America, just said he would not run for a Senate seat in Minnesota in 2006.

The left wing Franken hasn’t ruled out an ’08 run for office, however. Too bad he passed this time… among the likes of Kennedy, Kerry, Clinton, Schumer, et al, the radical Democrat Franken would have helped pull the party more to the center.
