House Majority Leader Eric Cantor tells Charlie Rose and Norah O'Donnell where he stands on Florida Sen. Marco Rubio's immigration plan.
Yesterday, as Barack Obama called for a bipartisan immigration bill in Las Vegas and Sen. Marco Rubio called for one on Rush Limbaugh's program, the chances for passage look surprisingly good.
A bipartisan group of senators has just lit a soggy fuse under the immigration debate. The statement of principles tabled by four senators from each party is such an impotent byproduct of compromise that calling it bipartisan is redundant.
President Obama told a crowd in Las Vegas that although he is excited about the bipartisan efforts Congress, if they "fail to act" Obama promised that he will send his own bill and "insist" that Congress pass it.
