Governor Ventura who I though was quite appropriate and eloquent in his comments the day of Wellstone's death at his press conference was quite disgusted with the rally yesterday. Ventura, who is no friend of Norm Coleman (they ran against each other for Guv. 4 years ago) is now considering appointing an Independent to represent Minnesota on an interim basis after the fierce, hatred (but I feel appropriate) tone of the Wellstone death rally. To be fair, Ventura was booed at the ceremony, but then again most death ceremonies include booing. There is some talk of a backlash against the tone of yesterday's rally. I feel Mondale will still win as he will increase his numbers with women voters. But, regardless of ones political persuasion, don't believe for a second that yesterdays rally was anything more than a political affair.
