WHICH IS WHY HE'LL APPROVE IT:

Heitkamp warns Obama on Keystone XL Pipeline approval (Susan Page, 9/27/13, USA TODAY)

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, a freshman Democrat from North Dakota, is ready to take on President Obama over the long-delayed approval for the Keystone XL Pipeline -- and she predicts her side will prevail.

"We know that we have the votes here in the Senate; we certainly have the votes in the House," she told USA TODAY on Thursday. "In fact, I think we could build enough votes to override a veto." [...]

"The Keystone Pipeline decision has taken longer than it took us to defeat Hitler," she said. "There's just something wrong with this process."

Obama "got himself painted into the corner" by environmentalists who oppose the pipeline, she said. "He's having a very difficult time to find a real, factual, legal reason to deny the permit."
