Baucus Exit Helps Landrieu

President Obama's decision to tap Sen. Max Baucus (D-MT) as ambassador to China "is a political boon for Democrats trying to protect their vulnerable majority, but especially for Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA)," Roll Call reports.

"In the game of gavel dominoes that would be set off by Baucus vacating his chairmanship of the Finance Committee, Landrieu would likely ascend to the top of the Energy Committee, which could serve as a valuable tool in her tough 2014 re-election bid."
