The Future Looks Great!

You are looking at the future of the Republican Party.
And you are looking at the future of America.
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is that future. Jindal (shown here with his wife, Supriya) is the most exiting young leader in America today.
And now Bobby has caught the attention of national commentators and Senator John McCain who campaigned with Jindal in Louisiana last week.
Here's what William Kristol says about Bobby Jindal in the New York Times today:
. . . in separate conversations last week, no fewer than four McCain staffers and advisers mentioned as a possible vice-presidential pick the 36-year-old Louisiana governor, Bobby Jindal. They’re tempted by the idea of picking someone so young, with real accomplishments and a strong reformist streak.
It might also be a way to confront the issue of McCain’s age (71), which private polls and focus groups suggest could be a real problem. A Jindal pick would implicitly acknowledge the questions and raise the ante. The message would be: “You want generational change? You can get it with McCain-Jindal — without risking a liberal and inexperienced Obama as commander in chief.” I would add that it was after McCain spent considerable time with Jindal in New Orleans recently, and reportedly found him, as he has before, personally engaging and intellectually impressive, that the campaign’s informal name-dropping of Jindal began.
Personally, I believe a McCain/Jindal ticket would be dynamite: exciting, vivid, relevant, trailblazing. It's what we need right now.
But whether or not it happens, be sure of this: Bobby Jindal is the future!
