Analysis: Politics, legacy loom over Obama decision on Keystone XL pipeline

By Jeff Mason WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama will lay out an agenda on jobs, the economy and the environment during his State of the Union speech on Tuesday. Some five years after Keystone XL was proposed, Canadian officials, Republicans and some Democrats in conservative U.S. states are expressing frustration over the lack of a decision by the White House on the initiative. The TransCanada Corp project involves construction of a 1,179-mile (1,900-km) pipeline from Alberta, Canada, to Steele City, Nebraska, where it would connect with a previously approved line. Supporters say Keystone XL would create thousands of jobs and cut U.S. fuel costs by reducing the nation’s reliance on oil imports from nations that are less friendly than Canada.
