    Not so sure Gindal will rush in if Obama's popularity is solid. Gindal is young, he'd be better off waiting for 2016 when he might get to face off with Biden or whoever else if Biden decides he's too old.

    You have to admit that Obama's election makes Jindal's campaign more possible.

    Republican's have much deeper rooted problems than finding a new face. Until they are resolved.

    No, you can't.:rolleyes:

    Even this election was relatively close with a lousy candidate coming off a terribly unpopular administration. 4 or 8 years distance from Bush and a strong candidate would make a real Republican very viable.

    Your right if in 4 years, Obama is being viewed as doing a poor job. If he is still liked, he'll win in a landslide no matter who his opponent is.

    My assessment of the republican party having deep rooted issues comes straight from the republican party commentary I hear everyday. I'm not giving you my opinion.

    Yes they have issues - but it still wasn't a blow out election, that's my point.

    Wider than either of Bush's "mandates".

    But I agree, the Republican party is not dead, it runs in cycles.

    Not a "blow-out" but I'd call it lopsided or convincing...bordering on "over-whelming" defeat. What was the electoral college tally?

    Republicans couldn't even get Romney in there this time simply because he is Mormon.

    There is no way Jindal will ever be the Presidential nominee of the Republican party; its close minded base will never allow it, he's not White enough.

    As a token VP, he may get it.

    365 to 162 with Missouri's 11 still in the undecided column. They'll prolly go to McCain though.

    You need to go back and look at Clinton vs. Dole or Reagan vs. Carter to see a blowout. There were plenty of states within 5 points which would have closed the gap A LOT. Not saying that McCain almost won but considering all the things against Republicans it was pretty darn close in reality.

    Seriously, I bet if he does run around 10% of electorate will not know which type of Indian is on election day.

    I think Stewart put it best when he said something to the effect of a 6% advantage in the popular vote equals an almost 3-1 dropping in the electoral vote proving that the system makes perfect sense.

    I am not fan of the GOP, but I think they may will change pretty soon. And particularly if the Obama administration is reasonably successful the GOP will be ready for the likes of Jindal, Rice or Powell.

    The campaign would have been run dramatically differently if the popular vote was what mattered. Its like chasing time of possession or number of first downs in Football.

    If the popular vote total is what mattered Obama would have put much more time in places like CA and the whole northeast and run the score up there while really not losing a like number of votes in the battleground states. Basically he would have fished where the fish were plentiful instead of fishing where the fish were much harder to come by.
