A “Wiser” Lou Dobbs?

What an absolute political turn-around to hear Lou Dobbs, on the Bill O’Reilly Show on January 8, 2010, sound like a kindler, gentler (as he puts it -“wiser”) soul.  If Lou Dobbs can advocate a comprehensive immigration reform that allows for undocumented workers to remain in the US based on practical and humanitarian reasons, then how can CIR not pass?  This is the most heartening news development I have heard for a very long time.  Let’s hope that it breeds some rationality in the hearts of the reactionaries.
