Attention Span Stress-Out: Coleman-Franken Update

In Minnesota's Senate race, Al Franken has taken the lead over Wide Stance incumbent Norm Coleman:

Franken gained his advantage as the board weighed challenges by the Coleman campaign. But as many as 5,000 withdrawn challenges from both campaigns won't be awarded until Monday, and the lead could change again.

The board has also rejected a request by Coleman to exclude some ballots his campaign had argued were duplicates.
There is still so much counting and lawyering left to be done, with no end in sight. Will the final count be finished before the six-year Senate term expires? Can our tee-vee-forged attention span handle the wait?
