by Leslie Turk

You may not like all of "it," but U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, unlike many of her colleagues, isn't sitting around twiddling her thumbs in Congress.

This week Politico published an infographic ranking U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu one of the most effective legislators in what has become among the most notoriously gridlocked Congresses.

(She also serves on the second most successful Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee.)
