Here's a pretty good summary of what that means for the 2010 Nola mayoral race. 

In sum: at last, an 800-pound gorilla enters the race.

I would just add that Lt. Governor Landrieu's flip-flop/delayed entry also has the effect of precluding entry by possible candidates who were still waffling around the edges - like Eddie Sapir.
