Al Franken Sends Love Letter to Wife — and to Constituents

This past Saturday was the 40th anniversary of the night Al Franken met his wife Franni. Did he send her a box of chocolates and take her out to dinner? I hope so — but the Senator from Minnesota went one better. He sent an email to his supporters honoring the occasion, describing how he met Franni, and saying that he wouldn't be where he is today without her. Here's an excerpt:

"That night — the first night of the best thing that has ever happened to me — was exactly 40 years ago today. When I was running for the Senate, I used to tell people, 'Franni and I are running for the Senate. If we win, I get to be the Senator.' Well, we won. And what I said proved true — I get to be the Senator. Another thing that’s true is that I wouldn’t be where I am today without the love and support of the most amazing woman in the world."

He ended this message by asking his readers to "take a moment today, remember a funny story about someone you love, smile, and be thankful." All together now . . . awwww! I wonder if Franni is embarrassed.

I would actually hate my husband were he to do something like this. I guess I am more of a private person.

Oh, I love Al Franken. Such a great guy! I liked Stuart Smalley too, I almost wish Al had stayed in comedy instead of the Senate.
