Gov. Bobby Jindal remains cool to the idea of describing him as an Indian-American candidate for president, according to a story in The Wall Street Journal.

The article says “Indians hoping to celebrate the prospect of an Indian-American in the White House might want to dial back their desi pride.”

Jindal said he doesn’t believe in “hyphenated Americans.” The two-term governor has said on more than one occasion that his parents came from India to assimilate, not to hang on to their former country.
