7. IMHO, Burris is a less than ideal candidate given the death penalty case and
Blago hanging over his head, but I think the Democrats would be foolish to make this a giant spectacle. The bottom line is Blago is still the official governor of the state and Burris meets the Constitutional requirements for the seat. They can seat him now, quietly, or wait until after the lawsuits and a huge brouhaha. Meanwhile, the public is wondering about the economy, jobs, healthcare and wars.
