    Now the oil spill has allowed Jindal to display his grasp of fine details while portraying both BP and Obama as ineffectual, said Bernie Pinsonat of Southern Media and Opinion, a Baton Rouge polling firm.

    Right now, I really don't care whether Obama or Jindal is "winning" - I just want to see this oily mess get cleaned up, regardless of whether its Jindal, Obama, BP, or Elmo that finally solves the problem. I believe that the great majority of Americans feel the same way.

    offshore oil wells ARE the province of the federal govt.
