Obama Looking To End Burris Mess

The Chicago Tribune reports that President-elect Barack Obama urged Senate leaders to seat Roland Burris in his now vacant Illinois Senate Seat if he had legal standing to assume the position. Burris met with Senate leaders yesterday clearing the way for him to be seated probably in a few weeks. Obama is trying to limit as many distractions as possible, and it appears that Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich has outsmarted everyone, and Burris will benefit from his political savvy.
