Debra Saunders: Obama's Immigration Policy Designed With Politics in Mind
"[Sen.] McCain never has forgiven Obama for supporting a poison pill that toppled the fragile coalition behind the immigration bill. McCain was willing to risk his far-from-modest ambitions to pass a compromise measure that was 11 years in the making.
For his part, Obama opted for purity - and kept alive a bill whose promise has kept the Latino community snuggly inside the Democrats' pockets," notes Debra Saunders in her column. "Unashamed, the president told Ramos that the Latino community 'can send a message that this is not something to use as a political football,' by - wait for it - voting. For Obama, of course. He never would use immigration as a political football."
