The title of this post says it all, but the NY Times elaborates:
Senate leaders reached agreement Thursday on a broad, bipartisan compromise that would put the vast majority of the nation’s estimated 11 million illegal immigrants on a path to citizenship, but its prospects for passage grew more uncertain as Republicans and Democrats clashed late into the night over parliamentary procedure.
Both sides said that without a quick resolution of the differences they would not have a vote on the final legislation before Congress leaves for its spring recess on Friday, raising the possibility that the painstakingly negotiated compromise might unravel as it is exposed to intense political scrutiny during the two-week Congressional break.
You just get thefeeling reading the news these days that the President’s legislative agenda, good or bad, is simply dead. President Bush is a lame duck, the Republicans are nervous and appearing more rudderless than usual, and I doubt anything major (or even minor) will happen in the short term.
