Changing My Mind
I have been on board with the Burris shutout in the Senate. It's outrageous that we should have to allow an appointment go through when the Governor is being investigated for *improperly shopping that very appointment*. At the same time, I wouldn't have guessed even Blago could find a Democrat so intent on disrupting what should be a triumphant day for a new Congress that has some pretty serious business to address. I guess I just no longer think keeping him out is worth the trouble. Plus, I'm not convinced it's even legal to do so.
Let's let him in. Turn the cameras off of this fool, and make him face a vote in 2010 and hope for the best. In the meantime, there's kind of a couple of wars and a depression to deal with.
