Bobby Jindal: The GOP’s Hope for 2012?

bobby-jindal2.jpgQuiz: Which young, thin, non-white, Ivy League-educated politician who has a foreign-sounding name and prominent ears is changing the face of politics as we know it? Oh … and whose name is not Barack Obama?

That’s right, the president-elect may hold a monopoly on current buzz, but some in the GOP are looking to their own whiz kid to lead them out of the proverbial wilderness the Democrats have just left behind.
His name is Bobby Jindal, and he’s the 37-year-old Indian American governor of Louisiana.
Right now, for most people, handicapping 2012 probably feels like re-watching the previews right after sitting through a 7-hour movie. Yet some Republicans looking to resurrect their party from the ashes of Tuesday’s electoral conflagaration are already turning to the conservative Jindal, at least at the search box.
Jindal’s name has surged 350% in searches this week, tied with Mitt Romney and second only to Sarah Palin in 2012-related political queries. Buzz patrons are also reading up on the rising star in a bevy of speculative articles about the future of the GOP.
Jindal has consistently stated he’s focused only on winning the 2011 re-election in Louisiana. But UPI is already calling the governor and his family “the other Obamas.”
Presumptuous, perhaps. But in 2004, who’d have thought that a first-term African American senator with a last name that rhymed with the country’s enemy number one and a middle name that matched enemy number two’s would be our next president? 
Stay tuned.
