WHY WE LOVE POLITICS:13 Days: Behind the scenes of Minnesota's historic election (Eric Black, Nov. 10, 2002, Minneapolis Star Tribune)
Norm Coleman is at a loggers' rally. Walter Mondale is at a political fundraiser. Paul Wellstone is airborne.
Everything is about to change.
This is a long but in many ways thrilling story about the MN Senate race, from the moment Paul Wellstone's plane crashed. It's obviously tinged with tragedy, but how can anyone say the fun has gone out of politics when you see all the twists and turns, mistakes and triumphs, brilliant ploys and catastrophic missteps it packs into just a fortnight?
