By early 2003, Kennedy is alone and looking for a Republican co-sponsor, who he thinks he might find in John McCain. As Esther tries to write Kennedy’s bill, two Republican congressmen from Arizona, Jim Kolbe and Jeff Flake, are writing their own vastly different guest worker bill, and a Democrat from Chicago, Luis Gutierrez, is writing yet another bill. When the Republican “kids” find a Democratic co-sponsor, Esther struggles to maintain the political balance that will keep Kennedy’s comprehensive bill alive and well through the legislative “season.”
