    Heartening to see the state that flirted with electing David Duke to high office make these choices.

    While I'm sure I disagree with Bobby Jindal on about 90 percent of the issues, it's undeniable he's already got quite the resume for a 32-year-old. Look for his name to pop up as a vice-presidential possibility from 2008 on out, or even a presidential possibility. A young, ambitious go-getting Rhodes Scholar who revels in being a policy wonk ... where have we seen that before?

    Reminds me of the 1988 Bloom County strip, where Oliver Wendell Jones' dad is reassuring Binkley, who's been panicking over Jesse Jackson's presidential run: "The first black president will be a Republican. I, myself, am voting for Al Haig." Personally, I think Berkeley Breathed had it right.

    What a condescending post. Did it ever occur to you that Duke ran a strong challenge because he posed as a conservative against Edwin Edwards, one of the most corrupt politicians in US history? Jindal is a conservative, that's why he's running strong in LA. Race has no bearing, but in liberal minds LA voters must be "growing" and becoming less racist. Whatever.

    I'd never heard of Jindal before but he seems promising.

    Maybe a run for the White House 10, 15 years from now?
