    It makes you wonder if the immigration issue was only another smoke in the eyes that has been thrown in people's face.
    What else does the political class need to understand that as of now a president that favors a comprehensive approach to fixing the immigration system and promote a regularization of the millions of people waiting in line, or in the shadow, to be an active part to this great country, is on its way to the white house.
    Let the nonsense stop. let's talk business and real actions to be taken to fix this mess!
    Congratulation to the Az Senator

    At this time of agony my heart breaks for the antis such as Tancredo, Hunter, Paul and organizations such as CIS, FAIR and American Patrol! And also my heart breaks for racists such as Marsha Blackburn, Lynn Westmoreland, Nathan Deal and Marilyn Musgrave among others!

    One more thing...perhaps if we get a McCain Presidency and 56-57 Dem Senators we have a chance of passing this thing.

    Hi Greg,
    now, what do you think that it will happen? Rep needs latino vote to win the white house, do you think that they will push another bill to have Mc Cain flip -flop?

    Anyone know process for replacing a Senator in AZ? Be interesting if he got replaced by a Republican who was nothing like him on the issue...

    While I am glad to see that McCain is the republican nominee, I still believe strongly that a democrat either one of the two running will be better for Immigration. If they can get the WH and the 60 seats in the Senate it will be a sure thing. A this point it may still be wishful thinking but they can definitely make a play for it.

    Next president will have a big say in Immigration, Supreme Court just to name 2 of the most important issues domestically.

    Appointed by the governor who is a Democrat followed by a special election. Wonder whether Napolitano will throw her hat into the ring.

    Kinda irrelevant, since McCain is not going to win. It is more pertinent to note that the Democrats will not lose a Senate seat due to Obama/Clinton being sworn in as President since the Governors of New York/Illinois are Democrats.

    Everybody is just racist. Obama and Clinton hate hispanics - and so does John McCain. They all say that they are going to enforce the border.

    How dare these gestapo law enforcers! People have a right to choose what laws they should obey. Some laws were just meant to be broken. Like any immigration related law.

    Sorry, linked to the 2nd page, instead of first. Incidentally, note that the voters prefer Obama's stance on immigration over McCain's:

    USC, with all due respect, there is still 8 months to general elections. Remember, what polls showed 8 months ago? Rudy was the pubs frontrunner, and McCain was behind... I think Fred Thompson (yes, he ran also). So, I would no put too much wait on what the polls say now.

    "USC, with all due respect, there is still 8 months to general elections. Remember, what polls showed 8 months ago?"

    LNLW, I agree that it is too early to say. However, things do look good for the Demos. They should pick up at least 10 seats in the House and 6 in the Senate. The country seems to be tired of the Pubs (with good reason, just look at the mess Junior has made of the economy and the "war" on terrorism). Obama is the best of the three on immigration (unless you are the Hate Group, FAIR, in which case he is the worst) and he seems to be receiving kudos on that instead of brick-bats.

    From an immigration perspective there will be CIR no matter which of the three wins. That is good. However, it would be a disaster for the country to have 4 more years of Republican rule and thus my hope is that Obama/Clinton can pull this off.

    I agree that people are sick and tired of pubs, but many still consider McCain the opposite of junior in the party. He is a very experienced politician, and assuming the fight will be fair, he has a chance. I also don't think his rule will be a disaster - or at least it has about the same chance of turning into a disaster as either of the Dems.

    "but many still consider McCain the opposite of junior in the party."

    Again, I agree. However, the various agencies/departments of the Federal Government are staffed by various losers (Julie Myers of the INS (ICE) being a case in point). We need a thorough cleaning out in DC and that is unlikely to happen under a Republican Presidency. Remember, that Junior is pro-immigrant and he still managed to appoint antis like Ashcroft/Myers etc.

    The Republican party used to be a good party when you had people like the Rockefeller's and the Chafee's in it. Now, it is just a right wing Nationalist Communal Party. My Indian friends will now that the BJP is described similarly.

    Very unfortunate comparison seeing how large sections of the Indian Left (CPI and Congress) owe allegiance to the Chinese and the CIA (remember IG's foreign hand rantings).

    If the comparison is accurate, the Republicans deserve the support of all Americans.

    I strongly suggest that USC take a look at polls from LA Times, Survey USA and other polling organizations that used registered and likely voters instead of the garbage pushed by ABC and AP which used all adults.

    More importantly, if the comparison is accurate, we can expect to see the Republicans gain in the future. The Democrats would have overreached or disconnected from reality (voters) in some significant way.

    OK. I looked at the LA Times & SurveyUSA polls:

    http://www.latimes.com/news/politics/la-na-poll27feb27,0,5452138.story

    http://www.surveyusa.com/

    The LA poll does show McCain ahead.

    The SurveyUSA shows Clinton ahead and Obama tied. Their electoral maps seem to indicate that McCain is going to get washed out in the electoral vote against one of the Demos and have a tighter contest against the other.

    In any event, I agree with LNLW that polls are premature at this point. However, if Obama/Clinton run a good campaign McCain should be easy to defeat.
