Roland Burris had the Senate Democrats and Harry Reid by “the short hairs” anyway and now assumes a rightfully appointed seat to replace Barack Obama in the United States Senate.

Senate Democrats plan to accept Roland Burris for President-elect Barack Obama’s vacant seat.

Burris was scheduled to meet Wednesday with the Senate’s top two Democrats — Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and assistant leader Dick Durbin of Illinois — on Wednesday, a day after his paperwork was rejected at the opening of the 111th Congress.

Senate officials in both parties, speaking on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly for Senate members, said there is a growing expectation on Capitol Hill that the saga will end with Burris being seated.

So, what was the “DEAL?”

Time will tell……..
