Roland Burris finds little love on Capitol Hill

Wednesday, January 07, 2009

When Illinois Senate-Designate Roland Burris arrived on Capitol Hill yesterday, he was turned away at the door.

While that may be true, the Senate leadership had made it clear that they did not want to seat Burris under the cloud of suspicion surrounding his appointment by Gov. Blagojevich. Todd Zwillich of Capitol News Connection, joins us now to mull it all over.
