    if this really materializes, it could redefine the entire dynamics of Indo-US ties.

    because, even though he is not associated with India in any way, its logical to believe that the trust level between the countries would increase by leaps and bounds. Any person, whereever he/she lives, always remembers where his/her origins lie.

    Your brilliance aside, if you do not have a good TV image then you cannot make into Washington politics. Bobby Jindal suffers from this problem.

    He will be of no help to India.

    He takes pride to be an American and has never given prominence to his Indian origin.

    Another desi gone mod.

    Bobby Jindal is more American than American them selves he will burn down relationship between India & US just to prove this point.

    I didnt say that he should do any favours for India. That will be a political suicide. As far as his denying is concerned, He is a politician. It doesn't matter where, but politicians lie. My some relatives also live in US. My cousins, who were born in US, love US, are patriotic towards US. but, it doesnt mean they dislike India or dont care about India. They love both countries, but more US than India. And there is absolutely nothing wrong about it. Even if he doesnt improve Indo-US ties, he should win because he deserves it.

    Bobby Jindal's gone overseas,
    Silver buckles at his knees;
    He'll ne'er come back and acknowledge me,
    Bonny Bobby Jindi!

    Bobby Jindal's frightened glare,
    Panning out his black ol' hair;
    He's not my boy for evermore,
    Bonny Bobby Jindo!

    That is right. Many Indian origin parents have US born children, who love the US, but also their roots and origins in India.

    But Booby Jindal?

    He has a chip on his shoulder.

    He thinks he is of a superior cut than Indians in India.

    That is the first sign of a person who is not sure of himself and full of insecurities.

    Being a politician does not mean that one denies his roots.

    The first Indian origin politician in the US was Congressman Dalip Singh Saund.

    He never denied his roots!

    well, i can certainly tell you that i dont really care who wins in US. You can yourself see the work he has done Louisiana as governor.
    As far as the relations with US is concerned, i again dont care as Im pro Russian. As the cold war 2 is starting, I would prefer our old trusted ally than US .

    After what most white conservatives feel is their experience with a non white President, the odds are stacked heavily against another non white to become the US President.

    Louisiana is the third poorest State of the US, coming ahead of Mississippi and District of Columbia.

    He is of course a crafty politicians. He knows and realises who will bankroll his elections, and so he works for them to the disadvantage of the others.

    I am not saying it.

    Obama's popularity rating is way below that what was expected.

    but that was because of his handling of Ukraine crisis. Anyother president would do the same thing. If we consider his economic reforms, americans like him .
    The next elections are going to be very interesting.
    After centuries US could get their first women president- Hillary Clinton . She still hasnt confirmed and is still 'considering' , but i can bet that she has already made up her mind.
