45. An honorable man would not have allowed himself to be used by a crooked governor like this
Even Burris opines that the governor is dirty. He had to have known the firestorm this would cause (though he likely didn't gage the severity of it). He also knew at the time of his appointment by the governor that everyone from Obama on down were telling him NOT to do it. But he let himself be used as the skirt that Blago is going to hide behind, something to buy him a little more time in this whole mess, and he has made a nakedly selfish ambitious grab for power when he knew how it would reflect on the party.
