Poll: Should Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal be chosen for the VP spot?
Written by 

jindal-supryaShould Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal be chosen for the Vice President spot?

According to well-known conservative commentator George Will, the answer is “Yes”.

Kinda.

He also recommended another possibility whose name has been “hot” lately.  Representative Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the budget guru, the author of the Ryan plan.

Here’s what Will said of the Louisiana Governor.

Louisiana’s Gov. Bobby Jindal, 40, was a 20-year-old congressional staffer when he authored a substantial report on reforming Medicare financing. At 24, he became head of Louisiana’s Department of Health and Hospitals, with 12,000 employees and 40 percent of the state budget. Back in Washington at 26, he was executive director of the National Bipartisan Commission on the Future of Medicare. In 1999, he became president of Louisiana’s state university system, which has 80,000 students. In 2001, he served as an assistant secretary of health and human services. He became governor after three years in Congress. 

Will did not mention the recent education reform victory which will promote his case to a national republican audience. 

So, do you agree that with George Will that Governor Jindal should be one of the considered VP candidates? 

Take the poll below and forward to others.
