With the recount looming and Emmers talking lawsuit due to many voting irregularities, it is a 50/50 chance at this point that Tim Pawlenty will be still in power when the new Republican legislature comes to session in January in MN. One of the hosts of the KTLK Saturday Morning Roundtable (Ron Rosenbaum, Sue Jeffers, Chris Baker) suggested that T-Paw would be well served to push through election reform that has been stymied by elite leftists who have been in control for over 40 years in this state. He could do it consequence free and possibly a feather in his cap come 2012 when he runs for president. Not only that, the republican legislature could ram a lot of legislation reforms that had been blocked for decades by the libs in this state and do some real political change for the better in this state before Emmer or Dayton take office. There are those screaming that doing so would be a disaster for the state and conservatism, but really, It's hard to see a downside to fixing decades of bad management by the left.
