  •  Always Close Always Wins (7+ / 0-)

    Mary Landrieu always has never had a comfortable win in any of her Senate election efforts. They are always close and she always wins. She always puts on a strong GOTV effort particularly in South Louisiana and knows how to raise cash. She unfortunately plays the conservadem card from time to time and its also unfortunately probably what has gotten her reelected time after time at the statewide level. Her greatest attribute is her devotion to children's causes which win her precious few votes, but earn her a place in my heart. Her biggest drawback is that she is in the pocket of the petrochemical industry, but otherwise is typically a reliable vote for dems. She has never had to face anyone at the level of Bobby Jindal, but the bloom has obviously long come off that rose so we will have to see.
