Franken's presence in the Senate would give the Democrats control of 60 seats, enough to overcome any Republican filibuster if they stay united.
A spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said the earliest Franken would be seated is next week, because the Senate is out of session for the July 4 holiday.
"I look forward to working with Senator-Elect Franken to build a new foundation for growth and prosperity by lowering health care costs and investing in the kind of clean energy jobs and industries that will help America lead in the 21st century," President Barack Obama said.

Court decides Franken Wins
As our country continues the plunge into socialism, the following pretty much sums up what politics has come to today... an out of work & bad comedian has become a Senator.
From Yahoo --
Franken will immediately join the rank ranks of elected idiots like Ninny Pelosi, Harry Reid, Dennis Kookcinich. He'll be like their "Joe" - the fourth stooge.
