Al Franken Kind of Calls Hillary a Horse


It’s nice that Al Franken wants to emulate Hillary Clinton’s transition into the Senate, but maybe he could have employed a better metaphor? “There’s something in Hillary as a model for me, because Hillary, well she came in with a different kind of celebrity obviously,” he tells Minnesota Public Radio. “But there was a kind of skepticism where she had to prove herself a certain way and also prove not to be a kind of a show horse, but to be a work horse. And so I want to you know put my head down and get to work when I get there.” [MPR]
