One of the downsides of being mentioned in the veepstakes is getting vetted not only by sometimes disgraced vetters but by the media.
Potential McCain running mate Bobby Jindal, the governor of Louisiana, is the subject of a GQ profile that has resurrected an article Jindal himself wrote back in 1994 about an amateur exorcism he participated in as a student, making this the talk of some corners of the blogosphere.
This article came up during his gubernatorial bids, but is getting fresh play now that Jindal is standing on the wings of the national stage, waiting to see if the spotlight will find him.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
