with strong grassroots organizing and Obama's messaging pulpit?

Will it pass with Democrats + minority of republicans

Will it fail because the tea party has much more influence than the establishment?

Regardless, I feel the GOP is in deep trouble.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  I think it will pass under the first scenario (0+ / 0-)

    most likely.  The real question will be how many House Republicans vote for it (just enough to pass or more to soothe Boener's embarrassment).

  •  Many Republicans realized they have no choice... (0+ / 0-)

    I think the real question is which version of Immigration Reform will really pass. I don't have any doubt something will be done by Congress in the next few months. I think there are enough Republicans and even right wing talk show host who understand that, they have no choice.
    Obama and Democrats know, they MUST satisfy those Latinos who campaigned and voted for them in massive numbers. Lots of Democrats in the senate and the house own their seats to large Latinos votes and their votes in the future will only become more important than today.
