McCain VEEP Sweepstakes

By George Dienhart

A friend asked me not to long ago who I thought McCain would pick for VP. I said that I though Bobby Jindal would be a good candidate, but I had doubts that Sen. McCain would pick him. Turns out I may have been wrong on that. Several prominent pundits (Gerald Seib , Robert D. Novakand William Kristol) have mentioned Jindal as a possible running mate for McCain. Jindal seems to be the real deal, and fits nicely with what the electorate seems to be calling for. He’s young, successful and runs as a reformer. Not being one who is overly PC, I’ll also say that it puts to rest that the GOP is the party of old white guys.
