Roland Burris

The Doser thinks Roland Burris (71) is long-in-the-tooth to be a totally suitable US Senate-appointee. In other respects, however, he seems a good choice. The problem, of course, is the appointer not the appointee. Burris would do better if, instead of thrashing around demanding his rights, he would simply say: "I'm a suitable appointee for the US Senate regardless of who may appoint me."

When they get a new Illinois governor, he would be wise to appoint Burris.

MJ is right. Until there is a different appointer, the situation of his appointment makes his credibilty a little less than Pres Ford's.
