-- -- that's what we like they call the Chicago soap opera and it's good stuff the drama.
It's about to unfold on Capitol Hill congress back in session this week and governor Blagojevich -- appointment.
Roland Burris says he's going to Washington to.
Claimed president elect Barack Obama's senate seat so how will mr.
Burris be received and is blog go getting the last lap.
Are we are back but Marc Lamont Hill and he -- the Temple University professor at Fox News contributor and Amanda Carpenter national political reporter for -- all but gone.
OK guys let's not let's start with you mark tomorrow Roland Burris shows up in Washington on Tuesday he attempts to be sworn in to -- -- Is the Senate Leadership really.
Going to block this by all accounts qualified.
African American politician from entering the floor.
God I hope so let me this has become -- big political mess that is the dignity of Obama administration -- to really bad start -- it's -- -- fought to reflect and and nevertheless.
I think for the first time maybe ever Dick Cheney will be an ally the Democrats when he -- that anyone objects to him being sworn in what I hope they do is is is reinforced.
Is that credential to be checked it was a allows ninety -- period will Blagojevich could be impeached.
His credentials aren't -- -- remember this is not about Roland Burris or shouldn't be his credentials are sound.
So he is gonna pay the price for Blagojevich is she now -- what what.
I have I think two things that first I'm not sure that he that his credentials are good I'm not sure that he's not connected to Blagojevich I think we need an investigation.
-- an -- in all honesty is unlikely that he will be anywhere near -- -- except maybe visiting as you know like I would if not for the Blagojevich scandal this is not about eroding and but you know a person is qualified and offices -- wave is getting the last laugh when the American people.
There's another side to this this this.
Potentially -- -- route to move by governor Blagojevich something it might legitimized him by selecting someone like Roland Burris doesn't.
-- probably think this whole circus Dele -- as the governor.
-- -- Hit it there's into space about more poetry readings and joke is about as bad hair and everything but if that we now is -- that disappointment could go through we're and a legal gray area and I'll begin is that and the governor sides and that respect.
It does legitimize the governor and Harry Reid might try to -- this to the rules committee to try to solid out for ninety days but.
He asked to make the case that he is not qualified according to the constitution and I don't think here we did that and then he's going to be different questions about easing the -- the senate.
To block -- somebody doesn't like.
I'll market the question about -- -- -- question about ability to govern and I think when you have someone who doesn't have the confidence of the American people because of all these scandals.
That raises serious question I think can be challenged legitimately -- it doesn't have the confidence of American people.
While we disagree and strongly disagree.
I am -- I I believe Republicans and Democrats equally okay.
If there -- what else Amanda Carpenter.
We'll continue this debate next hour why don't we.
So did not but I will -- time isn't.
