Is Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal ‘America’s Next Top Columnist’?
Time.com has reviewed Jindal’s widely-published guest editorials and concluded the two-term governor has “amassed a clip file of guest editorials that would be the envy of any freelance opinion writer.”
According to Time’s analysis, Jindal has been published 47 times in general interest outlets (like the Washington Post, CNN and Politico) and more conservative-leaning media (including the Wall Street Journal, Fox News and National Review). Nearly all (41 of the 47) have been published since 2012 — the start of Jindal’s second gubernatorial term. Jindal, who can’t seek re-election because of term limits, is currently considering a run for president in 2016.
“If this whole president thing doesn’t work out, Bobby Jindal should consider another career path: columnist,” Time writes.
