Here in the land of one senator
I had the pleasure today of interviewing Minnesota Supreme Court justice, and football hall-of-famer Alan Page for a project I'm working on.
Outside of the formal interview we spoke about national politics, particularly the job the new president is doing. Page said he was glad we now had a president who was proud of his intellectual achievements, and not, like our last president, gloating about his anti-intellectualis.
Page may very well be on the panel who will hear Norm Coleman's plea to retain his role as Minnesota's Senator, against a tide of evidence and opinion, and so he couldn't and wouldn't offer an opinion on what has become a great embarassment to the voters of Minnesota.
