Meanwhile, in an alternate reality..

Bobby Jindal, "by all accounts," was a great success.
By all accounts, Jindal's first term as governor of the Bayou State, where he was born and raised by barely off-the-boat parents, was quite successful. He assumed office in 2008 in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and before the economic meltdown — yet managed to rebuild New Orleans, literally from scratch.
It gets even more bizarre if you want to read the rest.  Believe it or not that's an article about why Jindal is failing in the GOP primary he hasn't yet entered.  But even so, it can be seen as an indication that, on the national political stage, local facts don't matter.  In which case, Bobby still has a shot.
