An excerpt from Lynn Sweet of the Sun-Times live blog of the Obama speech:
….Ok, I feel bad for Sen. Roland Burris. President Obama finished his speech. He worked the GOP side of the aisle. He turned towards the Democrats. Burris is standing alone. He waves at Obama from a short distance away. No response from what I see……No one from the Illinois delegation comes up to Burris. Finally one or two House members, both men who I do not recognize come up to Burris.
