Granted, the Governor Jindal has a lot of cleaning up to do in Louisiana ever since former Gov. Katherine Blanco and Ray Nagin ran the state into amok before and after Hurricane Katrina. But one can always hope that by 2010, Jindal, who has a strong record on ethics, economic and healthcare reform, changes his mind. There is simply right now no better candidate in the GOP to run for President in 2012 than Bobby Jindal. And yes, that even includes Sarah Palin.
Bobby Jindal — the Indian-American Louisiana governor who is widely viewed as one of the frontrunners for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination — flatly said Tuesday he's not interested in seeking the White House.
"No," Jindal said definitively when asked if he was interested in being president, according to The Associated Press.
Jindall made the comments at a Richmond, Virginia, news conference, during which he endorsed Bob McDonnell – a Republican running for governor of Virginia.
Jindal said instead he has his sights set on seeking reelection to his current office in 2011.
But AP reports Jindal, whom many Republicans view as best positioned to transform the party's image, did not rule out the possibility he may change his mind about a White House run.
