She was really a pretty good governor -- just not in a disaster situation. In most other respects she did pretty well by this state. Especially for education, which was her major focus coming into office.

In that respect, Jindal was really lucky NOT to have been elected 4 years ago. Blanco has laid a pretty good foundation for Jindal in the programs she promoted and also has set a very low performance bar in case of another emergency. Finally, this is the first election of term-limited politicians. So the legislature is going to undergo a serious power-shift. Jindal comes in riding one hell of a wave of good fortune.
