Should Burris be seated as Senator from Illinois?

I say he should be. Why not? There is no indication that he is involved in any way in the scandal (that has also yet to be tried/proven).

Blagojevich (who I suppose still gets the legal presumption of innocent until proven guilty) really threw a monkey wrench into the Democratic party machine with that move.

As a resident of Illinois I don't oppose Burris being seated as my Senator. He's a decent guy to keep the seat warm until the next brutal primary for this "open" seat.

The only controversy is that Blago made the appointment after all the grandstanding pols told him not to. Let's get pass this and pick a new Governor. I'm not crazy about the Lt. Gov. waitiong in the wings.
