Barack Obama’s looking for love from pro-illegal immigration voters in California. He’s out on the campaign trail touting his support for driver’s licenses for illegal aliens. McCain-Obama ’08, anyone?

Sen. Barack Obama easily won the African American vote in South Carolina, but to woo California Latinos, where he is running 3-to-1 behind rival Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, he is taking a giant risk: spotlighting his support for the red-hot issue of granting driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants.

It’s a huge issue for Latinos, who want them. It’s also a huge issue for the general electorate, which most vehemently does not. Obama’s stand could come back to haunt him not only in a general election, but with other voters in California, where driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants helped undo former Gov. Gray Davis.

Clinton stumbled into that minefield in a debate last fall and quickly backed off. First she suggested a New York proposal for driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants might be reasonable. Then she denied endorsing the idea, and later came out against them.

Asked directly about the issue now, her California campaign spokesman said Clinton “believes the solution is to pass comprehensive immigration reform.”

“Barack Obama has not backed down” on driver’s licenses for undocumented people, said Federico Peña, a former Clinton administration Cabinet member and Denver mayor now supporting Obama. “I think when the Latino community hears Barack’s position on such an important and controversial issue, they’ll understand that his heart and his intellect is with Latino community.”

Teddy Kennedy’s all in. Let’s hear his Spanish anthem from last year’s shamnesty rally to celebrate…

I see that McCain is now hyping secure ID. More crooked talk. McCain worked in the Senate to thwart secure driver’s licenses and earned a “poor” rating from Numbers USA on the issue of driver’s licenses for illegals.

Flashback: 9/11 and 7-11…connecting the ID fraud and terrorism dots.

Depends on what your definition of “threat” is…
