She is in a heated battle, with of all people a Republican named John Kennedy, for her Senate seat, and can't afford to be seen with the marxist Obama. http://www.newsmax.com/politics/landrieu_obama_fundraiser/2008/08/12/121314.html BATON ROUGE, La. -- Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu, who faces a tough re-election, has had her name removed from a fundraiser announcement for presidential candidate Barack Obama. Landrieu will attend the "Lipstick, Laughter and Libations" fundraiser for Barack Obama at a Washington restaurant next week, but she won't help host it. Landrieu's campaign said her name only was added to the online announcement of the fundraiser on Obama's Web site as a mistake. Her Republican opponent's campaign said she is trying to keep her distance from her party's presidential candidate and removed her name after they pointed it out.
