Minnesota's Recount

You may have heard about what's going on in Minnesota, where Al Franken (D) and Norm Coleman (R) are just a few hundred votes apart out nearly three million cast. What's interesting is that the two candidates each have around 42% of the vote; over 15% of voters chose independent candidate Dean Barkley (and a few picked Libertarian Charles Aldrich). I wonder what those minor-party voters are thinking now. I wonder who their second choice would have been, or how many of them are going to regret their mostly symbolic gesture.
