5. Jindal and Rubio are confused that their presence in the party signifies GOP diversity

The Republican Party of today would never have them as their leader. It defies voting booth mentality. What they say in public will never match what they do in the private of the voting booth. One look at that GOP Convention audience from 2012 will tell you that.

Oh sure, the Republicans love to fly a few colorful flags up the pole for celebrations, but when it comes to the day to day decisions, their party is as lily as they come. That is not going to change in 3 years time.

Jindal may as well be practicing his next gymnastics move as practicing an RNC acceptance speech. He'd have to bend over twice as much to achieve the same results. No medal. No nomination. No way.

At some point there are some things that don't bend that far - and one of them is the Republican Party.
