Punish Blagojevich, not IllinoisNice sentiment. But completely loony. Both Warner and Webb will do exactly as they're told by their superiors and will block Burris.
When Sens. Jim Webb and Mark Warner head to Washington this week, one of the first decisions they might make is whether the Senate should admit Roland Burris of Illinois to its ranks. Though Burris carries the taint of the man who appointed him, scandal-plagued Gov. Rod Blagojevich, Virginia's senators should not hinder Burris from taking office. The people of Illinois deserve two senators. [link]
