Once upon a time, ex-Senator Norm Coleman was all about the "healing":
Coleman urged [Al] Franken to waive his right to a recount, saying that the prospect of changing the result was remote and that a recount would be costly to taxpayers (about $86,000).
"I just think the need for the healing process is so important. ... hopefully, you don't have TV ads during an election recount," Coleman said.
And today? Eh, not so much:
