The Big Splash

Everyone watching the debate right now is thinking about whether or not the immigration issue will explode on stage. CBS News illuminates this:

Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo's candidacy itself represents a very large elephant in the room for these candidates. A longtime crusader against illegal immigration, Tancredo shines a spotlight on an issue many of them would just as soon not highlight. His message of getting tough on the immigration issue represents the sentiments of a loud and not-so-small wing of the party that favors much tougher border control and expulsion of the estimated 12 million illegal and undocumented aliens already in the United States.

I would add only one item to the CBS analysis, by saying that the idea of being tough on illegal immigration represents a loud, not-so-small and GROWING wing of the Party. TANCREDO '08
