Political postcards from the edge: Two US senators, one remote island

There may be hope after all for Democrats and Republicans to work closely together, although they may have to travel thousands of miles from the U.S. capital - and to a remote island - to do so. Senator Jeff Flake, an Arizona Republican, and Senator Mark Heinrich, a New Mexico Democrat, star in a reality television show airing next month in which they are stranded on Eru, one of the Marshall Islands, and work together to survive.

Republicans just killed a Democrat plan to give Congress more power by amending the Constitution

Senate Republicans stuck together on Thursday and voted down a Democratic proposal to amend the U.S. Constitution in order to let Congress regulate political speech by corporations. Democrats have been arguing for months now that two recent Supreme Court cases have allowed companies to inject millions of dollars into the campaign system, money they say dampens the ability of regular people to have a say in elections.

When immigration reform collapsed earlier this year in the House of Representatives, President Barack Obama said he'd do whatever he could do with his powers of executive action to push through new policies. While the White House didn't release a detailed list of what that meant, exactly, the most controversial element had to be providing some kind of legal shelter to the undocumented immigrants now in the country.
