The Immigration Policy Debate

Since I first noticed him when he was at FCC, I've known that Reed Hundt is smarter most people think. He writes today on Josh Marshall's TPM Cafe about his predictions for the future of the immigration policy debate.
The ship of state will be in irons, as the sailors say, because the White House will be focused on Iran bombing plans and the Libby trial; besides, the White House's base won't welcome the Democratic push for worker's rights and family values -- which is what the immigration cause can fairly be described as being.
Go read. It's not long.

Democrats should be planning to win this issue now, so they're ready to capitalize on their success when it arrives. Otherwise, we will just keep playing whack-a-mole for the next three plus years at least.
