Two major issues today—Barack Obama’s executive order and the upcoming US Senate race.
Our inbox today is inundated with emails trying to belittle the competition or put their sides in the best light.
There are two ways to view what transpired in Louisiana and in Washington DC involving yesterday’s Keystone Pipeline XL debate.
Mary Landrieu did not win.
People wonder if Mary Landrieu can pull out a close one, once again.
Legendary musician Stevie Wonder is trying to make sure she does.
How politically convenient is the timing of the debate in the US Senate today regarding an issue very important to Louisiana and to many of the “Red” Republican states who support the Keystone Pipeline construction?
That is an issue raised during today’s Senate debate.

Much of the drama evaporated from the Louisiana U.S. Senate race after Republicans gained control of the Senate in elections held on November 4.
Ever since Senator Landrieu's poor performance in the primary election, some Republicans have been predicting an easy victory in the run-off.
Such thinking is dangerous to say the least. It is never easy to defeat an incumbent, especially one who has been in the same office for 18 years. The Landrieu name has legendary political appeal in Louisiana as the family has been winning elections for 54 years.
Fall 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.
To some political observers, the prospects of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) pulling reserved commercials space for the runoff with Republican Congressman Bill Cassidy, might have been quite unlikely even after the Republican party trounced the Democrats nationally and even after Louisiana US Sen. Mary Landrieu eked out a very slight lead over her major challenger, on Tuesday, election day.
Such was the Republican wave Nov. 4 that, had one not known the date, upon hearing Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu’s reflective, almost elegiac in content, remarks as the vote nearly had come in, one would have thought it was Dec. 6 and she was issuing a concession speech.
If you've been anywhere near the Internet the past few weeks, you've seen this cool-dude-of-a-man in an online commerical (and I think TV too) letting us know that Mary Landrieu votes for President Obama 97% of the time.
