|DURBIN: Going alone on the DREAM|
|LUGAR: Will he return in '13?|
Not that any bill for DREAM was going to go anywhere this year – the ideological majority of the House of Representatives stood in its way. And political operatives in Indiana are preparing their own campaign against Lugar – planning to use his sympathetic views toward immigration reform as their primary political “ammunition” against him.
Which means the senator seeking his seventh term in Washington wasn’t going to actively tout this issue under any circumstances. Durbin will have this issue all to himself for 2011 -- that is, if it doesn't get squashed beyond recognition in the House of Representatives.
