It's Not Going to be Jindal

Despite Rick Moran’s hopes, and those of others here at RS, Gov. Bobby Jindal reiterated that he will not be John McCain’s Veep choice.

“Let me be clear: I have said in every private and public conversation, I’ve got the job that I want. And I’ll say again on air: I’m not going to be the vice presidential nominee or vice president. I’m going to help Senator McCain get elected, as governor of Louisiana,” Jindal said.“I look forward to continuing to be governor of Louisiana. This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to improve our state. We’ve cut six taxes but we’ve got a lot more work to do right here in Louisiana. … I’ve never talked to the senator about the vice presidency or his thoughts on selecting the vice president.”

This is the right choice for Louisiana, and we should be glad of it. There’s just too much work to be done there at this time.
