This lame duck Congress is bound to be interesting. As the Honorable Ms. Landrieu struggles for her political life, she is now forcing the Keystone XL pipeline issue to the forefront. Up until now her party had been playing a stalling game in the Senate. To avoid forcing the President to make a choice between jobs and his stance on the environment they’ve buried the legislation, but now that yet another of their Senate seats are at risk it seems their environmental concerns or need for the President’s approval aren’t so great. I suspect there will be much more on this, but Ms. Landrieu needs them to move at a speed the Senate has not seen in a very long time.
