Roland Burris Still in Limbo

As I watched Roland Burris yesterday in the rain attempt to enter the Senate and then after being rejected, do a press conference in the rain, it struck me that his voice didn't sound as strong as it should have.

Now I don't have any bad feelings for the man, but if the current Senate-Select candidate were to succumb, our legislators have yet to put into motion any legislation that would prevent Blago from appointing someone else.

Our politicians get so caught up in the response that they have yet to put into law a safety net so that no governor ever again with such a cloud over their head could do what Blago has done.
