Lindsey Graham Controlling Climate & Immigration?

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina is threatening to withhold support of the Kerry/Graham/Lieberman (KGL) climate/energy legislation if Senate Democratic leaders push ahead with an immigration bill. Lindsey Graham has somehow managed to make himself the most powerful Senator in the Senate. Now he seems to be controlling two of the most important pieces of legislation facing us today.

Senator Graham believes Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada is preparing legislation to overhaul immigration laws and grant legal status to millions of long term immigrants unlawfully in the country. Graham believes this could create problems for Republicans in the midterm elections. Graham believes Reid is playing politics in order to gain favor with Hispanic voters.
