  •  Remember Landrieu is from an oil state (none)
    so she has lots of backers in the oil industry.

    Funny thing is, lots of the oil companies who used to be hot to drill the Refuge have backed off in the last few years. It's really only politicos like Stevens who wants it so bad. It's money in the pocket for Alaskans (though many don't want to drill the Refuge either.)

    And of course it would be another ...uh..legacy..for Stevens. He's already got the damned Anchorage Airport named after him, and he isn't even dead yet!
