There's reason for optimism in the hope that the Senate Amnesty bill will be deep-sixed. Day by day, another Senator or two announces that he or she will vote against cloture. We've got the two Texans and the two Georgians coming around as well as the Missouri Democrat Claire McCaskill (amazing what representing a Red State can do for a Senator's decision-making skills).
Now, there's word that Gordon Smith of Oregon will vote against cloture (which smart readers of the Astute Bloggers know is the real vote on Amnesty).
