Wasserman Schultz, who's never had a job outside of politics, discussed the issue on Sunday’s "Meet the Press" with host David Gregory.
“As a member of Congress who represents hundreds of thousands of people in south Florida, I want to make sure that the right decision is arrived at and that the president makes that decision carefully and doesn't factor politics into his decision, which I don't think he is,” the Florida Democrat said.
Or it could have something to do with the millions of dollars being spent by pro- and anti-Keystone advocates. If Obama makes a decision now, that funding (much of which is benefiting Democrats, considering environmentalists and unions are on opposite sides of the issue and big funders) would disappear.
And seeing as how Democrats have some vulnerable candidates in the Senate - including six in energy states that support the pipeline - the loss of dough could be harmful.
But that has nothing to do with politics, right?
