Bobby Jindal for VP?

By RightKlik

Let's talk about VP options.

Disclaimer: I've been promoting Bobby Jindal since the earliest days of my odysseys in blogging, and I own Bobby Jindal clothing. But that's only because it's hard to think of anyone better than Jindal in terms of proven executive success and heartfelt small-government conservatism.

Please take note of the fact that even the wily RINO squish Allahpundit cannot wiggle out of the inescapable logic of choosing Jindal for VP:
He’s probably the one guy out there more than any other who would satisfy virtually everyone in the Republican galaxy. As Matt Lewis put it:


T-Paw is “meh,” Portman is a Bush guy, Ryan is an invitation to Mediscaring — but what’s Jindal’s big liability? He’s smart as a whip, respected by grassroots conservatives and righty intellectuals, has had plenty of executive experience, brings youth and racial/geographic diversity to the ticket, and on and on and on. The only arguments against him are that he endorsed Perry in the primary, gave a flat response to the State of the Union a few years ago, and once wrote about an exorcism he witnessed decades ago. So what?
Think about it.

  1. His support of Perry must have been a regional thing huh?

  2. The VP slot is perfect for Jindal, and Jindal is perfect for the VP slot. He needs a bit more seasoning at an even higher level before tackling the presidency so it's a good spot for him to grow (as much as the VP can be something other than just window dressing). He's also solid conservative pick, smart, critical of Obama and enough of a contrast to Romney's RINO-ness to make the ticket look conservative enough to be palatable to those of us on the right. Who knows, he may be able to add some luster to the blandness of the Romney campaign. He's certainly capable of that.

    1. History has shown the VP slot is not necessarily the best jumping off point to the presidency. And should Romney pick Jindal to be his Veep, and should Romney beat Obama, and should Romney have a dismal record as President (which is more likely than not) I suspect Jindal will have wished he passed on the offer. Assuming of course he gets the slot.

      Just playing devils advocate.

    2. Valid points, pretty much moot now.

  3. Rational Nation: While you're right about the V.P. slot, the same is true of those who came straight out of the federal legislatures. Kennedy and Obama seem to have beaten the odds. Johnson of course had been a senator, but we all know how he assumed the presidency. Former Governors seem to be the best prepared due to their actual executive experience and their status as non Washington insiders tends to help with more skeptical voters. I think Jindal would make a fine VP and a great President too.

    1. You are certainly right about Jindal would be a fine VP and President. I just have a hunch, and in my not so humble opinion 2016 or 2020, depending on how 2012 turns out may be his best option. Just go for the Gold. Besides, the VP slot really isn't worth a warm bucket of spit, to crib someone whose name I have forgotten.
