      ...he may apply this only to the House bill vote, not to a conference bill.

      Of course, that means to get to conference at all, the House almost certainly will pass a bill without any path to citizenship at all.  So the chasm in conference will be enormous.

      But the Senate is going to have to get most of what it wants for there to be a bill that ever becomes law.

      And if it doesn't, yes we have to use it to try to drum up Hispanic turnout everywhere we can next year.  If we can, then it means reform likely passes in 2015.  If we can't, then Hispanics, and also Asians, will have only themselves to blame for not showing up when it mattered most.  I hope people of color see the import and show up.
