Silver Understates Coleman's Predicament

Nate Silver:

Let's be frank: Norm Coleman doesn't have much of a future in electoral politics. Defeated Presidential candidates sometimes have nine lives, but defeated Senatorial candidates rarely do, and in his career running for statewide office, Coleman has lost to a professional wrestler, beaten a dead guy, and then tied a comedian.

Plus he's apparently under investigation for serious bribery! I definitely would not buy stock in Norm Coleman's political career.
