The Political Pitfalls of Filling Four Senate Seats

Hosted by

Senate Democrats have made it clear they won't be seating anyone appointed by Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. Blagojevich yesterday appointed former Illinois Attorney General Roland Burris to fill Barack Obama's vacant US Senate seat, setting the stage for a possible constitutional showdown. But that's not the only Senate seat that remains open with just a week to go before a new Senate is sworn in. John Kraushaar reports for Politico.
