Landrieu favors building the Keystone XL pipeline, protecting tax breaks or incentives for oil drilling, and placing limits on the power of federal agencies to set mercury or carbon dioxide guidelines for coal-fired power plants. Wyden takes the opposite position on all those issues.
Landrieu supports giving oil companies the right to export crude oil as well as natural gas, while Wyden, who before becoming chairman introduced a bill to block natural gas exports, does not have a public position on crude oil exports.

This will be popular in Louisiana, which drills and ships gas and oil. Basically, that’s why she’s in favor of sensible energy and drilling policies.
She will say that to improve her chances of being reelected where upon she will change her mind and claim she was misquoted.
Her appointment as chairperson and the gussy WP article are intentionally calculated to boost her otherwise poor reelection chances.
Mary Landieu has sold out LA again. This time they bought her with a prime committee chairmanship which will help her in a tough election. She will vote as Harry Reid demands.
The photo attached to the article makes her look like sn Obamanite.
she I a lying sack of crap just trying to walk the line in the middle of the road.
The reason the democrats are opposed to the US oil industry is because OPEC greases the wheels of the democrats, look how much money Clinton received, look at the illegal money Obama got from overseas when running for POTUS the first time.
Looks like old Moon Landrieus baby girl is sweating over her reelection
