Norm Coleman goes positive, take 2

Last week NRO editor Kathryn Lopez asked me whether Norm Coleman could pull out his race for reelection against the former humorist Al Franken. Yesterday I met with Coleman campaign manager Cullen Sheehan to try to get the story on Senator Coleman’s decision to take down all negative advertising on Franken. NRO has posted my long answer to Kathryn’s short question and the upshot of my meeting with Sheehan in “Norm Coleman goes positive.”

PAUL adds: Scott quotes Coleman’s campaign manager as saying that Coleman decided to run only “positive” campaign ads against the advice of his political consultants. That sounds right; the decision not to attack Al Franken seems like a poor one.
