The New York Times has a piece summarizing Bobby Jindal's lousy reviews:
"He went in there with high expectations, probably too high for any politician," said David Johnson, a Republican political strategist. "Republicans are looking for a voice to lead them out of the wilderness."
Still, Mr. Johnson said, "it was a flop."
Yesterday, I had a conversation with a political scientist in which I compared Jindal to Sarah Palin. Palin, I argued, had stepped up and delivered during her most important debut performance, at the GOP convention last year.
Palin benefited from low expecations, said my source. So will Jindal, the next time he makes a national appearance.
I'm not sure I buy that but of course time will make us all wiser -- and Jindal more practiced.
