Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich in early December to discuss the seat vacated by President-elect Barack Obama, his spokesman said.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid didn't want Rep. Jesse Jackson in the Senate, a point he made clear to Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich in a conversation about filling Barack Obama's vacant Senate seat, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Of course the Dems thought they finally got rid of their only black senator, they didn’t want another one. Hypocrits.
How ‘bout giving the seat to a minority. Maybe a Republican or somebody like that.
Did Reid offer Blago some choice Nevada real estate for it?
I was worried about the coming 4 years... not anymore. It’s gonna be a laugh-a-minute-thon.
Dirty Harry caught on wiretap...
The arrogance of Reid is astounding that he thinks he can dictate to the Governor who he should choose.
Senator Reid is obviously a RACIST, he did not want ANY of the BLACK candidates, Jesse jackson, Emil Jones, Bobby Rucs.
HE DID want Lily white Attorney General Lisa Madigan (Irish)
Didn’t want JJJ? This is going to get really good. We need to encourage the Caucus of Color to raise hell.
I have already called Mad Maxine to give my support to Burris. Some of you might also like to call. :)

I honestly think that Reed, Pelosi and Lollipop Boy see themselves as the anointed rulers of this country.
I’m calling.. rofl.
Harry has a cameo in this mocking YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0Bbf796rlo
I so love Cornyn getting in there to stir the pot!
Amazing. Not only did Zero manage to remain pure as the driven snow in Chicago, it appears that he’s pristine among democrats nationwide.
Switch to arugula...;^)
The republicans have a song parody making fun of an LA Times piece using the same term “Magic Negro” as the piece in the LATimes did.
The democrats vow to physically block the only black senator from taking the senate floor. The longest serving senator is a democrat former KKK leader. The leader of the senate was caught on the Blago tapes saying he did not want the son of the leading civil rights leader made a senator.
Now who does the MSM portray as racist?
This is an outrage. How long will Reid and the Dems be allowed to continue their racism? They are just using the spurious allegations against Blago to keep a minority out of the Senate.
This is a conspiracy against Blago by rich, white Democrats. There is a rush to judgment. Americans don’t care about whatever Dems think Blago did. Americans care about jobs and health care in this horrible economy. Let Blago get back to serving the good people of Illinois. There’s a rush to judgment in this conspiracy. This is an outrage! :))
I love Rat in-fight in the new year ;-))
So right! Dirty Harry Reid is not at all immune to dirty deals! Read, dirty Nevada land deals!
Yep. Obama = The Virgin in the Brothel.
Who also happens to already be a member of Congress.
Looking more and more like Fitzgerald arrested Blagojevich to stop democrats from contacting Blagojevich and getting caught up in this thing.
The democrat dogma dictates this via political promotion.
Too bad former Rep. Juanita Millender-McDonald pass on, because I know her former chief of staff.
Not so much to stop them from contacting Blago, but to stop them from closing a deal and exchanging whatever "quid" Blago was to get for his "pro quo".
William Walls of the Committee for a Better Chicago called Reid's opposition to the appointment of Jackson, Davis or Jones, all of whom are black, an act of racism.
"The U.S. Senate is an institution that is primarily white and has been forever and some people are more comfortable with people of their own kind," Walls told FOXNews.com. "Harry Reid seems to be one of those people."
Walls has vowed to rally activists in an effort to politically defeat Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin and Secretary of State Jesse White if they don't support Blagojevich's appointment for the seat, Roland Burris.
There could only be one deal. Yet there could be many offers. Fitzgerald didn’t want more people to get caught up making offers.
Oh please let it be so. What fun these Democrats are. Who knew? //grin//
NO! NO! NO!
ON HAVING THESE MEN IN THE SENATE:

It only matters if a Republican is involved!
Even the majority of Senate Republicans think so!
Just ask them, and they'll get the Dems consent to tell you so!
No one's stopping you from calling her replacement, Miss Laura Foreclosure Richardson!
“They are just using the spurious allegations against Blago to keep a minority out of the Senate”
They wanted a woman. Isn’t that considered a minority by RAT standards?
The Klansman, Harry Reid, has all but put a FACE on it - ANYONE but a NEGRO. And I’m pretty SURE that the OTHER U.S. Senator from this great State of IL, Richard DICK Durbin WOULD concur. Ain’t that right DICK???
Partners in CRIME. Ha, Ha
So charmingly put, NOT.
