Spotted on the wires

Jindal makes his move.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) is in Iowa today, according to CNN."Jindal's considered by many in the Republican party to be a rising star and his trip to Iowa, the state that kicks off the presidential primary season, is raising speculation that he might be interested in making a bid for the Republican Presidential Nomination in 2012. But Jindal says such talk is misplaced and that he has no plans to make a run for the White House."

Jindal has, however, placed on retainer the Connecticut political media consulting firm of Levenson and DeCrescenzo Strategies, LLP. One of the firm's two principals Harry Levenson offered no specific comment on Jindal

"I will say that the game is changing," said Levenson. "This time, the formula is: the lessons from Obama's success + the observable changing slopes of the media + the X factor = a 2012 win. Now, if you'll excuse me, Richard and I have paying clients to talk to."
