tsuris: NOUN: trouble; aggravation.
From The Washington Post:
With five days until the start of the 111th Congress, the corruption scandal surrounding Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D) has complicated what was already shaping up to be a dramatic start in the Senate.
Senate Democrats are left to deal with the mess of the successions of President-elect Barack Obama, Vice President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr., Secretary of State-designate Hillary Rodham Clinton and Interior Secretary-designate Ken Salazar.
But the most high-profile scenario involves what Democrats will do if Roland W. Burris, Blagojevich’s choice, makes good on his pledge to appear Tuesday on Capitol Hill to try to take the oath of office for Obama’s seat.
