bobby jindal could be the guy to watch tonight

Here's another CNN article on Louisiana Governor and GOP rising star Bobby Jindal, who has got the plum gig of delivering the Republican's televised response to Barack Obama's address to Congress tonight: GOP rising star Jindal's speech a 'coming-out party'.

In a way, the speech is Jindal's "coming-out party," with the GOP putting him on a national platform and positioning him as a fresh new face among potential 2012 Republican presidential candidates. Experts think 37-year-old Jindal could help appeal to young voters. And Lord knows the GOP needs it.

UPDATE: Eh. Does anyone think Jindal really knocked it out of the park? Granted, he didn't have a lot of room work with. I think this LA Times blog sort of sums it up: We know the GOP messed up, says Jindal. We'll make it up to you. And this take from Gawker is kind of funny: Bobby Jindal Channels Kenneth the Page in GOP Response.
