19. Tainted? Obama and one Democratic Senator after another have said he is an honorable man who
has done nothing wrong. And the Governor has both the power and the duty to fill this seat, so long as he does it without corruption. There was no corruption in this appointment, or Obama and the Senators could not be saying that Burris has done nothing wrong. The Democrats were unconstitutional on this, period. And they are trying to be even more unconstitutional by threatening not to seat him unless he promises not to run next election. That is an outrage. Whether he is the Democratic candidate for the seat next time is his call and that of the people of Illinois, not the Senate of the United States.

I'll take the rule of law and the Constitution any day over Democrats gone wild.
