This might be controversial, but having given it some thought, I'm of the opinion that Republicans should not stand in the way of Roland Burris' being seated in the U.S. Senate.

My take is that he was duly appointed by a governor, and that if the Democrats (who after all, control the senate) want to block him -- they should do so.

I'm sure there are differing opinions on this, and I'd love to hear them...

Lastly, I am currently scheduled to be on MSNBC today at around 11 am EST, discussing the highlights of '08 -- as well as what to watch for in '09.  I'd love to hear your input on that, as well...
