26. Good question
My guess is that the neocon vote is not as big as the potential independent-vote gain McCain will get as he leans more toward the center in the election. Jindal appeals to the right-wingers more because of his personal biography and characteristics than his political views, although he's certainly in their sweet spot there, too. Anti-abortion, anti-stem cell, pro-offshore drilling, etc.

Jindal's youth and vigor, and his obvious future potential, provide silent reassurances to those with questions about McCain's age. Party leaders look at him and see who will be running in 2012 or 2016.
