We were proud to support Mark then, and we're even prouder now.
I'm in D.C. today to attend the swearing-in, and while there are no pictures allowed in the Senate gallery (at least not by any of the guests), I'm sure I will be able to post a bunch of before and after pix, as well as give you all some flavor of the ceremony. Be sure to check back later tonight for all the details!
Meanwhile, here's this morning's Chicago Tribune coverage, a great background story by Kerry Lester of the Daily Herald (with whom I'll be speaking later tonight to relay the boots-on-the-ground story of the event), and an op-ed piece by Mark Kirk in this morning's Tribune that clearly shows he's ready to get work.
Go Mark! And Ellen, eat your heart out.
