CHICAGO, ILL. -- Now that Barack Obama will be moving to the White House, his seat in the U.S. Senate representing Illinois will have to be filled.

That's one of Obama's first priorities today.

He's meeting with Governor Rod Blagojevich this afternoon in Chicago to discuss it.

Illinois law states that the governor chooses that replacement.

There's already been speculation about his selection...from Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. of Chicago's south side who co-chaired Obama's presidential campaign, to recently-retired state senate president Emil Jones, to the governor himself.

It's likely the governor will make his decision quickly so the new senator will get some seniority before newly-elected senators take office in January.

Part of the timing depends on when Obama officially vacates his senate seat.

KHQA's Alexis Hunt is speaking with Illinois Senator John Sullivan today about his thoughts on that replacement process, his time working with Obama in the state senate, and if there's a chance Sullivan might play a role in the Obama administration. Watch KHQA News at 5:00, 6:00 and 10:00 p.m. tonight to hear what he has to say.

The Connect TriStates website apparently took down the article. The link, which worked perfectly well before, no longer works. At least not as of 4:55PM ET, 12/10.

That reference you made on another thread, “Just a neighbor from the neighborhood ...” Is that from the film `Blue Velvet’?

Obama’s lawyers called Tristates. Doesn’t anyone remember how his lawyers went after everyone who make “negative/false” comments about Obama?
The good news is that CNN, about an hour ago, speculated that Obama’s reluctance to hold a press conference and address these issues is being viewed as stonewalling. Better get used to it CNN. The MSM did their job, not Obama is going to do his.

Not intentionally ;) It’s a reference to Obama’s comment about Bill Ayers in a George Stephanopoulos interview where he says Ayers “is a guy who lives in my neighborhood”.

It’s a line from the movie also: a very frightened Isabella Rossellini uses it to explain to `Frank Booth’ (Dennis Hopper, a violent criminal) the presence of a young Kyle McClauchlin (sp?) in her apartment.
These Chicago players could be extras in that creepy film.

The reporterette to watch is Alexis Hunt who reported that the meeting actually took place. See second paragraph in post #18, first story.

Wonder if she’ll be on camera reporting tonight. Anyone in the Quincy, Keokuk area who watches this station?

Obammie made a phone call to the TV station and....

Now on the web site:

KHQA TV wishes to offer clarification regarding a story that appeared last month on our website ConnectTristates.com. The story, which discussed the appointment of a replacement for President Elect Obama’in the U.S. Senate, became the subject of much discussion on talk radio and on blog sites Wednesday.

The story housed in our website archive was on the morning of November 5, 2008. It suggested that a meeting was scheduled later that day between President Elect Obama and Illinois Governor Blagojevich. KHQA has no knowledge that any meeting ever took place. Governor Blagojevich did appear at a news conference in Chicago on that date.

Too bad they haven’t offered an explanation for the missing article from three days later discussing the meeting that Obama HAD with Blago and who they discussed for Senate seat. That one is just “unavailable”.

As I said this morning, to completely delete the article based on a claim by Obama is propoganda. To *UPDATE* the story with a quote from Obama is one thing, but to pretend the article never happened? That is beyond disgusting to me and frightens me.
