Blago Pick to Senate?

Roland Burris might not be persona non grata in the Senate after all. After vowing to block any appointment by Rod Blagojevich, Senator Harry Reid indicated yesterday that he would consider allowing Burris to be seated. "I'm an old trial lawyer. There's always room to negotiate," Reid said on Meet the Press. When asked if this meant there is a possibility that Burris will be ultimately seated, Reid said, "that's right." Reid is scheduled to meet with Burris on Wednesday.
