Oh goody- the plot thickens.
Gov. Blago plans on naming Roland Burris, another Blago and Chicago machine insider, to Barack Obama's senate seat.
Blago is apparently going to ignore the warnings by the US Senate and the Illinois State legislature and is going to name Obama's successor anyway.
Even if he is seated by the US Senate to Obama's seat, Burris will be very beatable in the next election. First, he will be 73 years old by then. Second, he a lifelong politico and has been part of the Chicago machine for years. Third, anyone attached to Blago, which Burris is, will be in trouble in 2010
Burris is standing on the Governor's left.
