Jindal MUST know that signing this bill takes him off the table. Maybe he already knows something - I can't imagine any politico purposely taking himself out of a vice-presidential opportunity. I can think of a scarier ticket (if I try real hard), but the fact that this is actually a possibility is scary enough.
I imagine there are perhaps a few voters who wish they could have that vote back and push the button next to Mitch Landrieu's name. I didn't think it would take too long before he (Jindal) did something like this. It's bad for Louisiana and it's bad for the United States. And speaking of Landrieus, I've been waiting a long time for Mary to become a household name - it'll happen within the next 10 years.
I have mixed feelings on Jindal, overall. At first I thought he might, MIGHT be the first decent governor we've had in years (btw, I didn't vote for him), but lately he's just showing what little backbone he has. Just another puppet. Shame.
I harbored some hope as well. Certainly, the man has extraordinary financial skills - Louisiana could use that. I know he's a very busy guy, so it's shameful that he even took the time to consider this bill...
