ROSEMONT, Ill. -- Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal has enjoyed endorsements from influential conservatives who want to see him on the ballot with Mitt Romney in November, but he won't divulge if he's being considered.

After a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Chicago Friday, Jindal declined to answer when asked specifically if Romney's campaign is vetting him for the job.

"When it comes to the whole VP question, look, I've got the job that I want. I'm not going to speculate on what Gov. Romney's going to do," Jindal told reporters. "I'm not going to comment on his process the same way four years ago I didn't comment on any of the speculation back then. All I'm going to say is that I look forward to supporting whoever Governor Romney selects to be on his ticket."

Compare the response to recent comments from Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, who has outright denied that he is in touch with the Romney campaign about the veep slot.
