You Know An Issue Is Important When The Frontrunners Backpedal...

May 25, 2007 -- "TO UNDERSTAND why the Senate immigration bill won't survive in its current form, look no further than what the presidential candidates in both parties have said about it.

Almost every one of them is opposed to it.

Democrats Barack Obama and John Edwards, reflective of the left, say it's too harsh. Mitt Romney and most Republicans, aware of outrage on the right, say it's too lenient and amounts to "amnesty."

Some of the most encouraging reviews come from Hillary Rodham Clinton and Rudy Giuliani. Keenly aware of how politically explosive immigration is for the base of both of their parties, they are running from the issue.

Clinton went as far as promising to read the proposed legislation "carefully" before passing judgment on it.

The only candidate on either side to wholeheartedly embrace the bill is Arizona Sen. John McCain, who helped craft the compromise. And it very well may prove to be his final undoing because the Republican base is most furious about it."

The Bill is, as we all know, too lenient and therefore De-Fence-Less. Hillary though, will be looking carefully at it, because she's been fooled by men so very many times she doesn't want this to be Tease-Rodham, Issue 7,442.
