It’s really not even a close call if you think about it.
Romney has the chance to pick a VP with the following bio:
Rhodes scholar (-turned down Harvard Med and Yale Law), twice elected governor, two-term Congressman, former Assistant Secretary of HHS. He was Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals, where he managed 40% of the state’s budget and turned a $400M deficit into a $200M surplus… at age 24.
Oh, and he’s all of 41 years old now.
What’s the biggest criticism of Jindal? He’s boring. A little on the wonky side.
Isn’t that exactly what Romney needs? Jindal is simultaneously the most exciting and most boring possibility being discussed. The guy oozes competence.
Competence with a specialty in public health policy, Romney’s weak point.
