The problem for the Repubs. is nominating a centrist who will not alienate the Tea Party base. I agree they'll probably go with Romney, although we're still way too early in the process to bet the farm.

Deep down Repubs. may understand that they really have little chance of winning in 2012 and should probably run a patsy next year and start thinking about their younger star players for 2016. At the moment I think Obama is sitting pretty for re-election.
I can't understand why you'd lump Jindal in with Barbour or Palin. Unless all you have to go off is his disappointing SOTU response. There may not be a governor in America with a more impressive intellectual resume.
