Former U.S. House speaker Tip O’Neill said it time and time again.  All politics is local. I interviewed Tip on a New Orleans television show I hosted back in the 1990s.  He went on for sometime that you have to be intimately involved in your home state, if you want to survive.  It’s a lesson that Senator Mary Landrieu forgot.

keystone-mapAlmost overnight, the approval of the Keystone pipeline has become a key issue in Louisiana’s cantankerous senatorial runoff campaign.  Incumbent Mary Landrieu is leading the charge in the U.S. Senate, while challenger Dr. Bill Cassidy is trying to one up Landrieu by being the Keystone champion in the House of Representatives.  So two questions.  Where have both of these candidates been with such an important issue all these many months?  And is building the pipeline the huge job creator and economic bonanza that both candidates say it is?

pinsonat2Fall 2014 has not been a good season so far for US Senator Mary Landrieu who made an unimpressive campaign showing eekeing out a victory on Election night last Tuesday but who is facing a major obstacle for her December re-election  day.  The Democratic base did not turn out for her and the her opponents Congressman Bill Cassidy and Col. Rob Maness's combined vote well-exceeded that of the Senator's.  Worse, Maness is in Cassidy's corner now and his supporters will likely follow-suit.
