Roland Burris has a problem. And that problem is Roland Burris. Sure, he has another problem called Rod. But that problem pales in comparison. Because, apparently Roland Burris is one of a few people who would actually accept Rod's nomination, and the sort of blind ambition that reveals makes him an undesirable candidate for much more than dog catcher.
The Reader has documented Roland Burris's recent failures as a candidate for statewide office. That might explain his inexplicable eagerness here. But, from the man who built this, I guess nothing should come as a surprise.
