Fix Pick: Being Bobby Jindal Washington Post any conversation about the future faces of the Republican Party has to begin with Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal..... Jindal is, above all else, a political meteor, sharing Obama's precocious skills for reaching the firmament in a hurry. ..... only this year that he became Louisiana's governor, the first nonwhite to hold the office since Reconstruction. And now, 10 months into his first term, the talk of a presidential bid is getting louder among his boosters ..... "I think the American people are tired of campaigns and politics," Jindal said. "We need to get behind our new president and our new Congress, support them, and stop being Democrats and Republicans."
GOP sees Bobby Jindal as its own Obama, Washington Post saysThe Times-Picayune - it's only a matter of when, not if Jindal will occupy the White House
GOP needs to look south for its salvation Kansas City Star the new Republican Party messiah. I speak, of course, of Bobby Jindal, governor of Louisiana.... the smart money is on Jindal, who lately seems to be familiarizing himself with Iowa for some strange reason.... Jindal showed how you herd cats in a hurricane. During Gustav, he did what Dubya, Brownie and ex-Gov. Blanco did not do with Katrina: thought, led, organized, unified, saved lives. ....... Republicans should have looked south, not north, for their hero. Instead, the national GOP maintained the old script of keeping the national leadership right, white, mediocre and slightly wacko. ....... Despite the pity party Palin held for the press in Miami, Jindal was the darling at the Republican governors meeting. ..... It’s tragic how the Republican Party let Bush-Cheney kill it and McCain-Palin nail the coffin shut. ........ dust off those “Abe Lincoln for President” buttons, fellow Americans. Owing much to Democrat Obama’s Lincoln fascination, Republicans across the country are repositioning themselves as belonging to the party of Lincoln.
Bobby Jindal's Saturday in Iowa MSNBC 'It all starts with family and builds outward from there,' said the first-term Jindal
Jindal's Medicine Wall Street Journal Jindal, Louisiana's prodigy Governor, has been arguing lately that only policy innovators will break a path out of the GOP's political wilderness ....... Jindal recently announced a major renovation of the way his state provides health coverage to the poor and uninsured, thus taking up a topic for which most Republicans require a shot of epinephrine just to pay attention. ....... Jindal wants to use Medicaid dollars to fund something like private insurance. That way, physicians and hospitals will be compensated for outcomes -- rather than volume of visits and procedures -- and get incentive payments for good performance. ....... Such a "defined contribution" plan is one way to wrestle run-amok health costs back under control and spend more responsibly. It isn't a new idea, but it is a good one. Congressional Republicans passed a similar reform in 1995 for Medicare, which Bill Clinton vetoed -- only to have his own bipartisan commission endorse it in 1999.
