GOP Looks to Louisiana's Governor


Meanwhile, others around the country were talking him up. No less an aspiring kingmaker than Steve Schmidt, the chief strategist of McCain's failed presidential bid, sees Jindal as the Republican Party's destiny. "The question is not whether he'll be president, but when he'll be president, because he will be elected someday." The anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist believes, too, that Jindal is a certainty to occupy the White House, and conservative talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh has described him as "the next Ronald Reagan."

If Steve Schmidt says this, then the GOP had better run from Jindal. Steve Schmidt, mastermind of the failed presidential bid of McCain. One of the big blunders by Schmidt was moving out of Michigan.

That sent a loud and clear message to the rust-belt states. That is why Ohio and Pennsylvania went for Obama.

Moreover, the MSM will "crucify" Jindal for this escapade.

I don't think it's fair to associate Jindal with Schmidt. Schmidt is looking for future jobs. If Jindal chooses Schmidt to head up his campaign, at that point run. Luckily you have the primaries to watch this play out. I think Jindal is the real deal.

It seems that there is a push withing the GOP for Jindal. That bothers me. The powers that be in the GOP have been a complete failure in grooming future candidates that connect with the voters.

The primaries should be the place for the vetting process to take place. Unfortunately, that is not the case.

Palin has gone through the process and has passed. Jindal while being young, has the problem with not having gone through what Palin has gone through.

In 2012, Palin will be running against a candidate who has been vetted and has the experience in the White House.

Palin's exposure and she being vetted will put her at a clear advantage.

Today we see how she still pulls the people in Georgia like she did on the campaign trail and this shows that she has "it".

And the MSM know this.

If Palin gets the pipeline going, she is a winner.
