Does this make the Democrats look good?

I can't believe it does, as today Harry Reid radically changes course:

"Changing course, Senate Democrats emerged from a meeting with Senate appointee Roland Burris on Wednesday and set forth the legal steps under which they're willing to welcome him into the Senate in President-elect Barack Obama's vacated spot. Praising the former state attorney general, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said the Senate is awaiting a court ruling in a case that tests whether the signature of the Illinois secretary of state is needed for Burris to take the seat. He suggested that would be a step toward seating Burris."

Read the whole thing. Sounds to me like Reid and co. are caving in to the Congressional Black Caucus.
