Senator Roland Burris

Illinois, say hello to your new senator: Roland Burris was sworn in to the United States Senate by Dick Cheney today. Burris was seated without objection or a roll call vote a week after his colleagues were sworn in. He received a standing ovation from the other senators. Burris is the only black member of the Senate.
