Louisiana Gov Jindal: Partisan Politics or Statesman
When Jindal first was elected Governor, he openly said that he wanted to be the Governor of all of the people of Louisiana. His recent national foray into the partisanship is the inapposite of his previous promise. He is Governor of Louisiana, not a talking head speaking about Iraq. In fact, the last I checked, Louisiana does not have an official policy regarding Iraq which he admitted recently on national television.
Also, having a private luncheon with Republicans is not exactly sitting down with the entire delegation and discussing in a give and take to see what gives and what it will take to move this state forward.
