Ambassador Burris

The thinking inside Illinois Republican circles is that Roland Burris was seated in the US Senate in exchange for him not running for that seat in two years. In exchange for being the good solider and not running (and probably loosing that seat to Mark Kirk, every Democrat's favorite Republican member of the House), Mr. Burris will be given an ambassadorship courtesy of President Obama. Just another line on Roland's tombstone. Time will tell.
