Senate Seating Update

Only yesterday Harry Reid was saying that Burris was not going to be a U.S. Senator.  After he refused to let Richard Burris into the Senate, Senator Feinstein broke ranks and offered her support for Burris, and the Congressional Black Caucus unanimously voted to support seating Burris.  The Senate leadership also came under pressure as Americans watched an old black man, who would be the only black Senator, forced to stay in the rain by a group of white guys.  Suddenly today after a Richard Burris, Dick Durbin, and Harry Reid met, Harry Reid and Dick Durbin reversed their positions.  They now say they see a way for Richard Burris to join the senate.

In other news, Harry Reid that Norm Coleman "will never serve in the senate."  I wonder how long it will be before he has to reverse himself on this statement as well.
