Today's Richmond Times-Dispatch highlights Louisiana's Governor Bobby Jindal -- as well as newly-elected Republican Anh "Joseph" Cao:

"Jindal, the son of immigrants, is the nation's first Indian-American governor. Cao, who fled Saigon with his mother in 1975, will be the first Vietnamese-American to serve in the House. Both men's stories of success emphasize what's best about this nation. As the Republican Party grapples to find its way, we suggest it look south to the bayou, where clean and effective government, principled conservatism, and an embrace of America's immigrant heritage are helping the GOP succeed in most unlikely places."
