Now that Al Franken is out of the US Senate and a Democrat is likely to replace him.

Franken should spend the next 3 years rehabilitating himself for a 2020 Presidential run. If we are forced to have a Republican Sexual Predator in the White House, Why cant we have a Democratic Sexual Predator in the White House.

It's still only allegation and speculation.

Otherwise, I'd love to see Al debate Trump and then move into the WH.

Wow. By chance is your name Schumer?

BTW, I hope Franken runs as an independent and kicks some serious ass.

I follow Gillibrant on FB and NO ONE is happy with her in railroading Al Franken. im so pissed at her that I'd take Al over her any day. He should move here and run.

In one swoop, all he's done is tainted, all he would have done, is gone, and everyone he stood next-to in a photo over the course of decades will have that thrown in their face in a future political ad. Brilliant -- just brilliant.
