Has Jindal ever shown any common sense before now? I'm concerned that this is an act, based on what I know of his previous behavior (i.e. birther-type comments, derision of science). Is it?

"common sense" is nothing more than a loaded term. If you're concerned that this is an act, remember that Jindal is a politician. EVERYTHING they say is an act. It doesn't mean it's not how they really feel, but whereas he was playing to the base before, now he's completely, clearly, obviously, 100% pre-campaigning for 2016.

Jeb Bush and Chris Christie are the early front-runners in my book, but I'm not sure how many of 2012 nutjobbers will lace 'em up again, or how much traction they'll get. Mid-term results and whether Europe kills Obama's economy will probably help signal that.
