[quote]Dardenne, Boustany Jr., or Cassidy. [/quote]
Probably the best three, but I doubt the last two are interested. Dardenne has ben salivating at being governor for a long time and he only ran for LT Gov in the event Jindal went to DC in a Romney Administration. I like him as a good guy, bu...

Like Mike Foster in his first term, Jindal in both of his terms really could have remade the state for the better. Foster just didn't care that much so he didn't do much other than tort reform and Jindal is so scared to have to fight for substantive reform and suffer a legislative "defeat" that mig...

Until the CC accepts the reality that they fostered and cultivated a massive institutional coverup of a small, but significant number of pedophile priests and their actions for decades, if not centuries, this story will only get worse.
How about admitting that the policy of reassigning pedophile ...

By now the evidence is overwhelming that the RC Church knew for decades that there was a serious problem with a small number of priests engaging in rampant pedophilla and that their policy was first and foremost to protect the institutional church at all costs. They did this at the diocesan level s...

That's not a bad thing at all in and of itself. Jindal's problem is that he hasn't actually dome anything substantive here while governor, so all he has to run on nationally is his image as a minority Republican who sounds like he knows what he's ...
