Now that the elections have ended, I'm pleased to say that not only is it extremely likely that the U.S. will get an immigration reform law, the country has the opportunity to move in a new direction. I'm not naive, I just hope that the Democrats can get their act together, have a plan, and can take this opportunity and run with it.
But first things first. Bush is now not only a lame duck, he is going to spend the rest of his presidency in the proverbial hot seat. He has accomplished nothing with his second term, and immigration reform is his last chance to not only do something, but to do the right thing, before he leaves office.
