Jindal is a pretty bright guy and accomplished, but he's a little too far to the right on social issues. He's going to have a tough time selling himself to moderates and will have problems with women voters. An interesting candidate, though, albeit not my preference.
My preferred candidates are
1. Jon Huntsman- Still the best all-around candidate. Very good record on job growth and fiscal discipline, moderate on environmental and social issues, experienced and sensible in foreign affairs.
2. Mitch Daniels- Good budget guy, solid all around candidate.
3. Jeb Bush- His brother really ruined it for him. He should have been the second Bush president. It will be tough for him as Dems will tie him to W. even though that's quite unfair. Good sensible moderate and accomplished two term governor, and credible on Latino issues (not just because of his wife, either).
4. Lindsey Graham- I've always been a fan of Sen. Graham. He's been at the forefront of trying to propose compromise agreements on really big issues in the Senate for a long time. He can be a wee bit too hawkish in foreign affairs sometimes, but I still find him very acceptable.
