US Senator From Minnesota: Jesse Ventura vs. Al Franken?

Jesse Ventura is hinting at a run to be the US Senator from Minnesota this fall. Only problem, there is already an eccentric and popular personality with his hat in the ring — satirist Al Franken!

Let's compare credentials. Franken has worked on Saturday Night Live, and written books like Lies and the Liars Who Tell Them. He is also a pioneer of progressive talk radio.

Jesse "The Body" Ventura is a former governor of Minnesota, Navy veteran, and radio and TV host. Oh and don't forget — he's also a veteran of professional wrestling.

Who would you like to see in the Senate — the wrestler or the comedian? Are both skills equally suited to Congress?
