Franken, Klobuchar in tough spot on Internet piracy bill

Larry Jacobs discusses Minnesota politicians' views on piracy legislation.

Still, University of Minnesota political science professor Larry Jacobs thinks that the political storm will eventually blow over for Franken and Klobuchar. Jacobs also said Franken's response to the debate says a lot about his evolution as a politician. "I think it does show that Al Franken's political chops are getting better," Jacobs said. "In the old days he might have stormed onto the floor and taken a stand. This one, he kind of just ducked and hid."
