The lawyers are now in charge of fighting for the senate race in Minnesota. The recount continues, and legal teams for Republican Norm Coleman and Democrat Al Franken are sifting through ballots, looking for any valid reason to challenge a vote for the opponent. And it's not always easy to tell for whom a voter intended to cast his ballot... there are crossouts and doodles, bats and jellyfish, and much of it is a jumbled mess. Don't take my word for it, check out some of the contested ballots yourself. The folks at Minnesota Public Radio have gotten their hands on many of the ballots, and they are running a "You Be The Judge" poll on their website.
