4. Isn't the pipeline vote political theater?

Landrieu is facing a runoff against Cassidy, and bringing the pipeline to a vote will dramatize To Louisiana that she is independent of the President on things that matter to businesses in Louisiana. But if the Senate passes it -- likely, I guess -- then Obama will veto it. Still, this will undercut the argument that Cassidy has been making to Louisiana voters that Landrieu is just the President's puppet.
