Gov. Bobby Jindal appeared on Sunday’s Meet the Press as a
surrogate for Republican Presidential candidate John McCain. Jindal squared off
in debate against Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine, who represented Democratic Party
nominee Barack Obama’s campaign. Both Jindal and Kaine were introduced as two governors
who were “on the short list” to be tapped for their party’s vice presidential
nomination. While Jindal seemed to hold his own against Kaine in debate, he
seems to have closed the door for good on speculation he may be joining McCain
on the Republican ticket. Jindal said “I don't want to be vice president” when asked
repeatedly by David Gregory if he was open to the possibility. Watch the video
