The President is not against the fence/wall. I believe he even mentioned it in his speech Monday.

According to the Vice President yesterday on Rush's show:

"It is given serious consideration, not a wall, for example, from ocean to ocean. There are a lot of places out there where it doesn't make sense. There are other places where it does. I'm told -- I'm not an expert in this by any means -- that when you get into built-up urban areas fences -- "security barriers" might be a better word for it -- are in fact an important part of the overall plan and need to be part of it. There are other areas where you've got vast spaces out there where you need other kinds of arrangements"

I wouldn't sweat it, the muscles in his veto hand have long since atrophied.

Seriously though, the fence is not incompatable with a reasonable guest-worker program. Speaking from a purely dirty politics point of view, he can take the high road on this along the lines of "The people have spoken and I won't go against them" and still be able to get a solid guest worker program and immigration enforcement that does not involve mines, machine guns or box cars packed with illegals.
