Default CIR - 2006 or 2007

Fellas,

Looks like the pundits are saying that the House, and possily Senate, will fall into Democrat hands beginning January.

Here is what Robert Novak says:

The conventional wisdom about the 2006 elections among both Republicans and Democrats now is that the Democrats will take control of the House and could also win the Senate. One House Republican committee chairman, who publicly exudes optimism, privately predicts -- and has predicted for six months -- a loss of 30 House seats.


==

If that's a wisdom, no wonder Democrats are in no mood to compromise on CIR. That also explains the chilly reception to Hutshison-Pence. When the democrats have the house they'll craft a new immigraton package and compromise with the perhaps even more democrat-leaning senate. So 2007 is going to be the year of CIR. If the republicans are smart, they're going to try to get best immigration deal possible in the lameduck session before the 110th Congress starts in January. But the democrats may block it altogether. In that case the retrictionists are going to be sorry they didn't take the best deal when it was available (which look like now).

Thumbs down wouldn't believe novak

Bob Novak is a republican spin master. I wouldn't believe him..
this could be an attempt to "energize" the republican base.
My understanding is most ditricts are safe i.e redistricted along
racial , ethnic lines such that it is difficult to lose.
