Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal was interviewed on Jay Leno earlier this week.
Here is an example of what I was talking about, getting behind candidates early on. While the governors office is well along in the process, I believe that Bobby Jindal is a person that has a lot of potential for a presidential bid. I will be watching his career, and supporting him in any way I can, even if it is just some blogging about him and telling friends.
Jindal’s comments about how blessed he and his wife are appear in stark contrast to Michelle Obama not being proud of her country until now. Throughout the interview, you can see that Jindal gets it on many levels, and from what I have seen and heard from and about him, he has the potential to make a great president.
Hat tip Michelle Malkin. I agree that he looked “comfortable, charming, and authentic,” however, I disagree with her on the Indian accent part, Leno did it to be funny, not truly disrespectful, Jindal laughed at it, and Leno does that sort of thing to people of all political persuasions. And heaven help us if we can’t laugh at ourselves, at that point we might as well be liberals!
