  •  I think the Republicans will not take well this (0+ / 0-)

    because he can be one of those "adults" running, and he will not, improving a lot the prospect for M Landrieu.

    •  What are you suggesting? (0+ / 0-)

      That Republicans in Louisiana will vote for Landrieu as a result of this? If that's what you mean, it doesn't make sense.

      •  No, no, it was not this (0+ / 0-)

        I mean that the Republicans can blame him if they win not LA-Sen 2014. And more if they lose because they have one of this not "adult" candidates (akin or Mourdock style) winning a place for the last runoff vs Landrieu.

        If he want serious candidates for the senate, other Republicans can attack him for getting out of the race in his home state. To have not him in the race is an obvious damage for their prospect in LA.

        Landrieu is not as weak. I can see Landrieu winning this race.

        •  In other words (0+ / 0-)

          You think Jindal could beat Landrieu, but you doubt any other LA Republican can. I don't think that's his fault, though. Even if we take his word that he's an "adult" candidate (which there is room to doubt), he is not the only possible one.

            fist level Republican in Louisiana. It is not his fault to make a difference in the race.

            But at same time he shows that he is not and he want not to be a team player. And this is his fault. He want a Republican majority but without work for it. He want serious Republican candidates but without becoming one of them. I think this is what the Republicans can see bad from him.

            And this is just what I would thank him now. Without him in the race M Landrieu is the favourite.

            I think it is a very longshot for him to look at the race for President in 2016. But if he want this, better for us.
