'We Didn't Get Elected Just to Cut Ribbons, Kiss Babies, and Hold Office'

It’s been said that there are two types of people in politics: those who want to be somebody great, and those who want to do something great. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is the latter. Last week in New Orleans, he was asked this question (submitted by an Oklahoman):
Governor, a number of the red states and their Republican governors seem to have squandered some opportunities for great policy achievements. How did you keep Louisiana focused to achieve all the goals that you've been able to accomplish?
Unsurprisingly, Gov. Jindal knocked it out of the park (go to the 41:38 mark). I encourage you to watch the entire speech.
