(CNN) – Republican Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal on Thursday vaguely responded to questions about him serving as vice president on the Republican presidential ticket in 2012.
"I've got the job that I want," Jindal said on CNN's "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien." "I know pundits will be speculating on who he's going to pick. At the end of the day, he'll pick the person who will do the best job as president and make that decision not based on political or other grounds."

"Whoever he picks I'm going to support that ticket. I think it's that important not only for Louisiana but our country," Jindal added.
Jindal threw his support behind Mitt Romney in April, after supporting former presidential candidate and Texas Gov. Rick Perry earlier in the cycle.
The former congressman has consistently said he intends to continue serving as Louisiana's governor despite questions about his national political future. Jindal was elected to his second gubernatorial term in 2011.
Former George W. Bush speechwriter and CNN contributor David Frum helped increase the Jindal chatter with an opinion piece for CNN on Wednesday in which he outlined the up sides of such a pick for presumptive Republican presidential nominee Romney.
"As symbols go, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is a doozy: a brilliant policy mind with an inspirational life story who has run an effective government in corruption-tainted Louisiana. He can talk data with Romney and credibly sit at the kitchen tables of the struggling middle class," Frum wrote. "Which leads to this thought: Bobby Jindal for vice president!"
