WASHINGTON -- Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., joined Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird in urging President Barack Obama on Wednesday to approve the long-delayed Keystone XL Pipeline.
"We think the time has come for the administration to make a decision," Baird said during a meeting with reporters in the senator's Washington office. He said Landrieu's support for the project is important, particularly in the Senate Democratic caucus where some are pushing the president to turn down the project.
TransCanada said the pipeline would have the capacity to transport 830,000 barrels of oil per day from the western Canadian province of Alberta to Gulf Coast and Midwest refineries. Landrieu said it would make the United States less dependent on oil from foreign nations who are often hostile to U.S. interests.

HAs Landreiu ever said anything on this subject before? Or is this a position being taken for votes?
All for show, you fraud. Like Maobama cares what you think!
Did you forget to /s ?
No need for any /s here... she will run as a Republican (of the GOP-e variety). Of course, she'll be voting, if re-elected as a regular 'Rat.
Might as well ask Obastard to endorse nuclear energy or clean coal.
We'll know ObaMao is on the ropes when senators from Commie states start running against him.
Sorry Toots, no sale.
She is a true Dem w true Dem sensibilities about energy self-reliance.
One suspects that she either asked permission to "press" Mister Obama for Keystone support; or, she was instructed by the WH to pretend to do so.
No facts to support suspicions, just a hunch.
Why not build the damn thing anyway? I mean, the oil industry has "a pen and a phone", right?
Landreiu hates clean air and baby seals!
Mary Mary. He’s not going to support the keystone That great grandpa wasn’t just a bookkeeper — the family has received profits from the land leases he wrote and the gas/oil wells drilled under those documents (check out schedule E of tax papers for income from family trust) He’s not gonna do anything that might compete with his current profits.
Btw While you’re doing research look into the Tulsa Oil company that said grandfather worked for and its relationship to Solindra
She’s positioning so voters will forget she voted for obamacare.
Mary is trying to adjust her azimuth to coincide with Louisiana voters. She is still about 179.99 degrees out of phase.
What an obvious political ploy. The voters of LA won’t fall for it.
Shove it Mary.
too little too late Mary.
EVERY one knows you are up obammy’s rear end and have been for years.
Good luck with that.
