“There are so many things we need to do in our state."

the new york times has a story up on republican bobby jindal's first few weeks as governor of louisiana:
Mr. Jindal said Hurricanes Katrina and Rita had presented him with a unique moment in his state’s history to enact reforms; as he put it, the storms “caused people to rethink how they wanted their social institutions to be designed, how they wanted services to be delivered, what kind of state they wanted to call home.”

i am growing more convinced that (if they don't run themselves) any republican presidential nominee in 2012 would be a fool not to have gov. bobby jindal or gov. sarah palin at the bottom of the ticket. both are competent, extremely intelligent, reagan conservatives who could bring in new voters and ruin the democrat message that the gop is racist and sexist.

at this point i am more excited about 2012 than 2008.
