Oil Spill Response Restores Shine to Jindal's Political Star

Friday, 11 Jun 2010 01:38 PM

Although the oily sheen in the Gulf of Mexico signals the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s handling of the crisis has burnished his once-rising star anew.

And, even though he says he has no plans to run for president in 2012, as many Republicans once hoped he would, CNN’s Political Ticker reports that some new supporters might hope he reconsiders.

In fact, CNN's John King even saw a homemade "Jindal for President" sign on the Louisiana coast this week.

Asked for a response to such attention, the 39-year-old Jindal told King Thursday: "I've got my hands full down here, we've got to protect our state; we've got plenty of work to do in Louisiana.”
