June 12 (Bloomberg) -- The attempted seduction of Senator
John Cornyn by immigration reformers is akin to my effort to get
Neil Patrick Harris, the best emcee ever of any awards show, to
sing at my next birthday. No matter how much I offer him, he’ll
turn me down.
That’s the situation in which Senator Marco Rubio of
Florida finds himself with several Republican colleagues. Take
his wooing of Cornyn, of Texas. Cornyn is just not that into
immigration reform. He won re-election comfortably in 2008 by 12
points, despite losing the Hispanic vote by 25 points.
