Does Al Franken winning MN's senate seat affect anything?

I mean beyond his job title and how it'll affect us in Minnie. I mean nationwide and party power control in the Senate.
Update: mt_pelio: It's law here in Minnesota that if the count is to close it's an automatic recount, he simply won in votes on the recount
Update 2: William: I think Florida keeps that title
Update 3: Mpeg: yay San Francisco!
