Blake Dvorak of Real Clear Politics doubts that Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will be John McCain's running mate for the same reason that I do. Since Jindal has less experience than Obama, he would undermine one of McCain's strongest arguments against the Illinois senator. However, Dvorak also suggests an interesting idea:

Jindal, it seems, needs a moment like that. And, wouldn't you know it, there's a convention coming up in just a few short months...
