    I mean she's somewhat moderate but not really a conservadem.  She usually goes along with the party and seems well left of the state of Louisiana.  Is she really THAT good at constituent services?

      Offhand, what comes to my mind, is her unshakeable support of oil and gas.

      good at moderate posturing and backing the important Louisiana industries: fishing, oil & gas, and farming (specifically sugar). She's very effective at providing for local projects, and generally still well liked after Katrina highlighted her profile, put her in the spot light, and helped her build up her rapport in South Louisiana particularly the NOLA suburbs.
