The Blago/Burris Drama Only Begins
UPDATE - Press conference to begin momentarily. Reid and Durbin at the mike. Brings up "the entire Senate will have to act on this." I think he'll make sure everyone goes on the record on this one. Burris won't be seated today. But reading the tea leaves, it is clear that Burris WILL be seated. The question is how bad will the Democrats in the Senate look in the process. They focus on the Illinois Secretary of State signature. Silly stuff. And insuring that Franken will not be seated until the Minnesota Senate contest is finally resolved.
With the reports that the Senate has capitulated to Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich, credibly accused of trying to sell the appointment of an Illinois Senate seat, by seating Roland Burris, many are stating the drama is over. I beg to differ. The drama is only beginning.
