In an interview with Katie Couric on the CBS News webcast after Obama's press conference Wednesday, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) said he doesn't hold out much hope for Norm Coleman in the protracted Senate race in Minnesota.

Discussing the significance of Arlen Specter's defection to the Democratic party, Ryan said, "This is the 60th vote."

"If Al Franken wins," Couric offered.

"Yeah, and most of us think that that's gonna happen," Ryan said.
