GOP Future Delayed? Maybe.

Text settings

Bobby Jindal has fast become the GOP's Great Brown Hope. He keeps demonstrating why. First he said he did not want to be considered as a potential running-mate for John McCain, now he says he won't be running for President in 2012. Sensible laddie. 2016 is time enough. Apart from anything else, he has to be re-elected Governor of Louisiana in 2011 first. Sure, he might change his mind and, sure, Obama may be a very unlucky President, but smart people won't be betting that way. At least, not yet.
