How to Become President
Border Control First

Fox & Friends -- Fox News -- June 29  

    Jim Pinkerton: First of all it's important to remember there are another 120 million voters out there and so if McCain says build a fence first as the key to immigration control and Obama says, no, no, let's have a comprehensive package, which means amnesty, then I think that's a pretty sharp cleavage.
    Obviously McCain has changed his position since last summer. He is now, as he said over and over again during the campaign, I got the message on the need for border security. That's where the vast bulk of the American People are.
    That's how to win this election by talking about border security first, and then the issue of immigration and amnesty and so on. I think if Obama goes forward with this plan for giving health care to illegal aliens he will get creamed in the election.
