Or don't start it, Bill Kristol.
[Picking the 36-year-old Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal as vice-presidential candidate for the Republican ticket] might also be a way to confront the issue of [John] McCain’s age (71), which private polls and focus groups suggest could be a real problem. A Jindal pick would implicitly acknowledge the questions and raise the ante. The message would be: “You want generational change? You can get it with McCain-Jindal — without risking a liberal and inexperienced Obama as commander in chief.” I would add that it was after McCain spent considerable time with Jindal in New Orleans recently, and reportedly found him, as he has before, personally engaging and intellectually impressive, that the campaign’s informal name-dropping of Jindal began.Please. Even though Governor Jindal seems like the bright future of the GOP, one look at his smiling brown face and everyone knows why some are suggesting that he be added to John McCain's presidential ticket. It's the extra ingredient, if you will, besides Jindal's manifest competence. (Jindal's parents immigrated from India.)
Let's allow Governor Jindal to take care of the home front and leave the Identity Politicking to the Democrats.
No fighting Obama's brown with Jindal's brown, please. Thanks.
