Look for Mary's name in this article on Kos about Ed Schultz, liberal talk show host...apparently, Mary is more liberal than she can openly express here in Louisiana. The article states:

"I'm a big fan of Ed Schultz, ever since the North Dakota radio personality hit the Bay Area airwaves a few months ago. Schultz is not an Air America personality, yet his show is now available in 70 markets.
Schultz, 50, has a long way to go before he approaches the influence of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly and others in the conservative-dominated medium. His tale of how his second wife helped lead him out of the darkness of right-wing belief is a bit too neat, and some recent fundraising for the Democratic Party raises questions about his independence. But Schultz is an overnight sensation with a red-state base and a regular-guy sense of humor, all of which have been lacking in the liberal world.

The show was developed with $1.8 million from Democracy Radio, a New York nonprofit run by Tom Athans, the husband of Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), with a board composed of three Clinton administration veterans. Another Democratic senator, North Dakota's Byron Dorgan, recommended Schultz to Democracy Radio. Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) hosted a fundraiser about a year ago at her home for Democracy Radio and Schultz, which was attended by about 20 Democratic senators, including Hillary Rodham Clinton and Tom Daschle. Such lawmakers "feel the acute pain of having talk radio be mostly conservative," Athans says.
In a perfect world, Schultz would have a television show on MSNBC or another cable news network, though I don't know if he's willing to leave ND for NYC or DC (he's just rented a place in DC). In either case, liberal radio is best served by a multitude of voices. So cheers, to Air America, Ed Schultz, and anyone else hitting the airwaves for our cause."
