Not a good week for Bobby Jindal. First, the State of Louisiana turns down an offer from FEMA for a bunch of emergency supplies, and now someone's unearthed an old essay in which he talks about participating in an exorcism.

I don't want to talk smack about Jindal, but this is the kind of thing that comes with national media attention. The people Obama is looking at can expect the same treatment.

I'm sort of torn. Older pols tend to have more accomplishments to their name, so they stand up better to this kind of scrutiny, but I'd like to see someone as VP who's young enough to be a good president in 8 years. It's a tough balancing act.
