Is It Jindal?

Rumors that John McCain is ready to announce his running mate — and his suspiciously-timed visit with Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal — are reviving the arguments both for and against picking Jindal.

Conservative admiration for Jindal is almost boundless, but there is generally the feeling that the recently-elected governor would benefit in the long run from developing a track record of success in Louisiana before making his own bid for the presidency. There is also the concern that being picked as McCain’s running mate could be a loss for both Louisiana and Jindal, as Jonathan Schwenkler writes:

[T]he last thing Louisiana needs is to see its charismatic young governor strapped to the back of a losing campaign or – worse – shipped off to Washington for four or – even worse!! – eight years under Old Man McCain.

Meanwhile, Jonathan Martin of the Politico discounts the possibility of a VP announcement this week.
