9. With Landrieu it is all about who the GOP gets to challenge her
Bobby Jindal has his eye set on the Governor's mansion and he will likely win. Thus he's out of the running. I think her only real threat is Congressman Charles Boustany. Boustany represents Lafayette which was critical for Landrieu's win last time. Bush and Suzzie Terrell (Landrieu's opponent last time) went to Lafayette and tried to win them over with abortion. Landrieu campaigned on economic issues in Lafayette, sugar in particular, and won the key swing vote there.

If Boustany probably knows his home district better than Terrell did and thus it is unlikely he would make a the same mistake. Hence, he'd be a formidable opponent.
