Sen.-elect Al Franken will use late Minnesota progressive Paul Wellstone's bible at today's swearing-in....

Cool. Franken was a passionate supporter of Wellstone's. It's nice to see he hasn't forgotten.I really do think Franken has a chance to be a great senator. I know all the circus theatrics Republicans will use to frame him as a clown, but Franken, I think, has shown his mettle over the past 8 mos and will do just fine.

Plus, it's a bit of a thumb in the eye to Coleman who never would have won the seat if Wellstone hadn't passed on.It's a sign that Coleman was an aberration from continuity.
