Al Franken rules out Senate bid – for now

Comedian and radio host Al Franken has ruled out a run for the U.S. Senate in 2006, but says 2008 is a different story.
Franken, known for aggressively mocking right-wing politicians and media personalities, told his listeners on Thursday that he would not be a candidate for the open Senate seat in Minnesota.
“Minnesotans are very serious about their politics and it would be silly. I don’t live there,” he said.
