Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio...

...both made a strategic decision at the beginning of this year: come out in full support of immigration reform in order to be the candidate of the Republican Party establishment in 2016.

If the House of Representatives is successful in killing reform, however, what seemed like a good idea after last November's debacle may turn out to be a fatal mistake.

I'm still convinced that the next Republican presidential nominee will be the most conservative candidate in the race. (Think Ted Cruz.) That's just where the party is right now. If so, Ryan and Rubio may already be disqualified.
