Pitney had a quote in a recent article in the New Orleans Times Picayune. He talks about Sarah Palin as a choice for VP candidate with McCain as opposed to Bobby Jindal.
Jindal would have been a terrific choice, said John Pitney Jr., a professor of politics at Claremont McKenna College in California, if he had “a few more years as governor, a few more pounds and a few more lines on his face.”
Although she has a few years on the 37-year-old Jindal, Palin is an even more untested choice. The difference, said Pitney, is “there’s a heck of a lot more women than Indian-Americans.”
