Do you think the nomination of Roland Burris to fill Barack Obama's vacated Senate seat should be honored?

(CLOSED)
Poll Results: 1,884 votes

Yes, it was a fair nomination by Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
 
31%
No, because Blagojevich is accused of trying to sell the very Senate seat Burris was appointed to.
 
25%
They need to hash this out in a court of law, not on Capitol hill.
 
9%
Other.

Burris was properly appointed to fill the temporary vacancy, Kirk won the seat in 2010 and a Democrat, probably Lisa Madison, will beat Kirk in 2016

Nancy, I keep falling back to the C.I.A. Worldfact 2007 issue and from what I've gathered, only Australia comes closest to being a true democracy. Most of the other countries call themselves republics, including many which don't come close to the description "A Republic recognizes the inalienable rights of individuals". Wherever you got that description of republic vs. democracy is as biased as FOX media's "news reports". This is why I made the dig about it's predictions of how democracies fail. Lets leave that to Nostradamus. Otherwise, watch out Australia, you're headed for a dictatorship.
