    You won't be any happier if Louisiana replaced her with another Vitter-type.

    I love Mary and will send her $$$.

      As Energy Chair, Landrieu would have power to do far more harm than another nutty freshman Republican.

      The fossil fuel industry must be challenged and defeated if we're going to save civilization as we know it. That means Democrats will have to stand united behind taking action on climate change. Defeating a fossil fuel Democrat in the Senate brings us closer to that goal. It will show that siding with fossil fuels does not guarantee re-election and moves the consensus within the Democratic caucus in the right direction.

      And frankly, someone who's too much of a coward to take action when faced with the greatest crisis of our time isn't deserving of public office.
