bobby jindal sworn in as louisiana governor

This week in Baton Rouge, Bobby Jindal was sworn in as governor of Louisiana to become the first Indian American elected head of a U.S. state: Indian-American sworn in as Louisiana governor.

He's also the state's first non-white governor since Reconstruction in the 1870s. At the swearing-in ceremony at the state capitol on Monday, Jindal vowed in a speech to clean up Louisiana's notorious political corruption and to speed up the state's recovery from hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005.

He's got a lot of work ahead of him. Good luck, Governor.
