  1. Senate Throws Down Keystone Gauntlet

    Obama’s looking for his red pen. The U.S. Senate passed a bill approving the controversial Keystone XL pipeline yesterday, setting the president on his first collision course with the GOP-controlled Congress. Lawmakers approved the measure 62-36 — notably not enough to override a presidential veto. The bill now heads back to the House before landing in the Oval Office next week. Obama has vowed to await a review of the project, due Monday, before making his expected decision to veto the plan.
