The Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times have reported that Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D-IL) will name former Illinois Atty. Gen. Roland Burris to the Senate seat vacated by president-elect Barack Obama at a news conference scheduled for 3:00 p.m. EST. Of course, it might not mean much... Democratic leadership has said that they won't seat anyone associated with the embattled Illinois governor.

What do you think of the news? What is your reaction to his pick?

NB: The estimable Ron Elving, NPR's senior Washington editor, will join us in our second hour, after the press conference, to give us an on-air update.
