Mary Landrieu against the GOP wave

On the morning after the Senate rejected approval of the Keystone XL oil pipeline, the bills's sponsor, Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., chair of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, walks through a corridor on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2014. Landrieu had hoped that passage of the Keystone bill would improve the chances of retaining her Senate seat in a runoff Dec. 6 against Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)In the four days Congress has been back in session, Sen. Mary Landrieu’s every move has garnered unusual amounts of attention — and she’s made plenty of them. She’s held two press conferences, spent nearly 190 minutes talking on the Senate floor and tried to push through legislation authorizing construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline. Every act of hers turned into a reading of tea leaves, as political observers latched on to the last political story of the election.
