Despite the death of the senate immigration reform bill, President Bush will be having a Tuesday luncheon with senators to attempt to revive the bill. Interestingly, Gingrich, who has flirted with the idea of joining the presidential race, and who has had little interest in the immigration issue, has now weighed in with a sharp statement blasting the president's efforts as a fantasy.
No, don't expect Newt to make a serious run for president. But he does still have influence, and one more prominent voice in opposition to the senate bill won't help bring it to life.
A "fantasy?" No doubt.
