The Bobby Jindal Buzz Is Stronger Than Ever These Days:
WASHINGTON (AFP) — The young Indian-American governor of Louisiana, Bobby Jindal, said in an interview with Fox News on Monday he did not expect John McCain to ask him to be his running mate for the November election.
Jindal's name has been floated increasingly in recent days as a vice presidential choice of the presumptive Republican presidential candidate.
At 36 the Louisiana governor would offer an age counterbalance to Senator McCain, who if elected would be -- at 72 -- the oldest US president to take his first-term oath of office.
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal doesn't think McCain will choose him and neither do I but there are many people pushing his name around. Bill Kristol posted an op-ed in the New York Times yesterday talking about the Jindal push and Newsweek elaborated online. Many have compared him to Barrack Obama but I just don't see him pulling in conservative or blue-collar voters on a national level. I still say Romney, Pawlenty and Huckabee are the most likely.
