In addition, there is this

In addition, there is this Washington Times editorial on the Louisiana Senate race. The Times makes the essential point that Mary Landrieu’s voting record is not that of the “independent voice for Louisiana” she claims to be. Unlike her colleague Senator Breaux, Landrieu consistently votes with Tom Daschle and against President Bush. And, though she is certainly independent of the president, she is quite dependent on the trial lawyers, and they in turn can depend on her. It is the job of Landrieu’s opponent, Susan Terrell, to expose Landrieu’s liberal record to the voters of Louisiana. Terrell seems to be doing an effective job of this. In doing so, she opens herself up to charges of “negativity.” But that is a price well worth paying, given the dynamics of this race.
