    I think that the Democratic leaders in the senate should negotiate amongst themselves to say that they will NOT accept Burris, within whatever senate parliamentary procedures apply, and they will work toward finding a qualified African American replacement who will not be Burris or Bush.
    Frankly, I think they should try to find the most qualified replacement, period. Regardless of race.

    Exactly. If they specify that the Senator has to be black it's like saying they're looking for a token. No self-respecting person, regardless of race or gender, would want that label.
