Novak: Jindal for VP

Robert Novak: "Jindal for vice president

The latest possible Republican vice presidential prospect pushed by Washington-based conservative activists is newly elected Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, fresh from a triumphant six-day special session of the state legislature. In Baton Rouge, Jindal won approval of several tax cuts and funding for transportation, hurricane protection and higher education. He was elected last October in a landslide.

Jindal, the son of immigrants from India and a Catholic convert, is at 36 the nation's youngest governor. He has been praised by conservative activists, including Rush Limbaugh and Grover Norquist. The major argument against him for vice president is that he should not be taken from Louisiana so soon after assuming office."

Whoosh! Goin' up that elevator pretty quick.

Almost too quick of a jump. Too bad he didnt win the first time he ran.

I almost hope McCain selects him. He'd have to get out of the office more and therefore perhaps lift our hiring freeze. MSM and the democratic nominee would dig dirt on him that many Louisiana voters would not find amusing. And McCain will lose anyway.

On the other hand, if worse came to worst (I'd become literally ill if it did), and a McCain/Jindal ticket actually won (perish the thought), at least we would be rid of that Reagan Baby as our governor.
