Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal's relative inexperience is the main reason I'm skeptical that he'll be seriously considered as a running mate to John McCain. However, a recent New York Times piece makes me wonder about something else. Are the same views that make him a darling of the right potential liabilities in a race for national office?

From the Times article:

The newly conservative tone of state government is seeping through a host of successful bills -- on school vouchers, creationism, stem-cell restrictions and tax and spending cuts -- and it is adding to the speculative frenzy here surrounding Mr. Jindal as a potential vice-presidential choice for Senator John McCain.
