Let's take a look at the Republican lineup to face Hillary Clinton and examine in a "nutshell" (excuse the expression) their respective appeal and chance of making the final cut.
Whether you believe Obama should fix our broken immigration system through executive action or not, I have news: We could address this problem in two hours. That's how long it would it take to hold a House vote if Speaker Boehner would just bring up the bipartisan Senate immigration reform bill that passed over a year ago.
Misguided immigration policies don't just tear families apart; these policies also impact the communities where aspiring Americans live and contribute.
The one constant from the GOP has been that President Obama's foreign policy is a mess. They greedily snatched his quip about having "no strategy" for dealing with ISIS out of context and finger pointed this as further proof that Obama has been a miserable failure in dealing with any Middle East issue. It's, of course, bunk
In the Latino community two things are clear about the immediate political implications of the president's delay -- the GOP dodged a lethal bullet while the Democratic Party shot itself in the foot.

A total solution won't emerge overnight, but strategies exist to aid in a gradual phase-out of humanity's reliance on oil.
Too many children and families live in fear of losing their loved ones because of our broken immigration system.
We can let politics, pundits and ambivalence on strategy rule us, or we can live by our words and our moral conviction to do right by those who depend on us.
The choices we make in the voting booth always carry weight, but they have even greater heft in a year when control of the Senate is up for grabs, when GOP leaders have promised to roll back decades-worth of public health and environmental safeguards, and when the threat of climate change grows more severe.
Looking above at recent temperature anomalies, much of the US is cooler than normal, but the eastern Pacific warm spot continues to prevent much rain from reaching California, which is hotter than normal.
It's a toss-up which party will control the Senate, but Latino voters will be a factor. And even if Republicans do manage to win the Senate, insult and inaction on immigration will likely hurt their chances to win the presidency in 2016.
I know you guys want us to do something about Ukraine, ISIS, immigration, the budget, and many other things but really, we don't have any idea what to do about any of it.
You are concerned about climate change, are alarmed that mankind is worsening it, and reside in a state where a Senate contest is on tap for the fall. If that is the case, you should think long and hard before casting your vote.
Three boxes sit on any policymaker's desk: "In," "Out" And "Too Hard." Comprehensive immigration reform typifies the kind of issue that inhabits the "Too Hard" box, where it has sat for many years. As is common to the "Too Hard" box, the need for a fix is glaringly obvious.
Ironically, Speaker Boehner resorted to the American justice system to sue President Obama, the very system he has worked relentlessly to underfund for indigents. Instead of suing Obama, he should start fixing the system he and his colleagues broke.
