Burris Cleared to Take Senate Seat

Click to Read

Burris Cleared to Take Senate Seat The New York Times reports that Senate leaders have cleared the way for Ronald Burris to fill Barack Obama's vacated Senate seat. In a joint statement, Democratic senators Harry Reid and Dick Durbin granted the senator-designate title on Burris. Burris was appointed by Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who's accused of trying to sell that very seat. Reid and Durbin stated: "[B]arring objections from Senate Republicans, we expect Senator-designee Burris to be sworn in and formally seated later this week."

I find that depositions are an excuse that people never question. I told a boss I got a last minute call from a lawyer, and I was at the door with all sorts of good wishes. I can't imagine a last minute deposition really, but it works.

Thank you Stephley - I shall pass that along to the Uncles and Aunts - granddad couldn't care less cause they just leave him in the OF home all the time. They probably still say to come anyway, then I have to say,"Oh but Eliza's (my sister not her real name thou) is having chemotherapy and cannot travel and I...I must care for her day and night." And really she's having chemo but she's at home watching damn 'Mr & Mrs Smith' again!

About time! Funny how Harry Reid thought he was God in the situation. "He had declared with certainty a week ago that Democrats would not seat a senator appointed by a governor now accused of trying to sell the seat." Now he has to bite his tongue because he knows he was wrong and how damaging this could be to his career. He could have seated him without the signature from White, and they knew it. He was just playing games with his power high.

I believe you're not looking well, positively contagious as a matter of fact, and anyway, you have to work overtime that day. Sorry.
