He may have been passed over to be Mitt Romney's running mate, but Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is being given the opportunity to address the Republican National Convention. Jindal was long considered to be among the top choices before Romney decided on Congressman Paul Ryan for Vice President. Today, the Republican National Committee sweetened the pot a little, by releasing a list of six speakers for their big show, including the Governor Jindal.
Political analyst Bernie Pinsonat said its a great opportunity for the rising conservative star.
''If you're Bobby Jindal you're very pleased with it and I think most Louisianans will be interested and will probably tune in,'' he said.

Pinsonat said a strong speech will only aide the Governor as he pursues national aspirations.
''He has plenty of time to make it powerful and those are the types of speeches Jindal usually hits a home run with,'' said Pinsonat.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie landed the job of key note speaker for the convention which opens in just 11 days in Tampa.
