FILE - In this Aug. 30, 2013 file photo, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal speaks in Orlando, Fla.

You could see them stirring in 2013 as they plugged holes in resumes, took preliminary steps to build potential campaign organizations and made carefully calibrated moves to get better known by Americans generally and key constituencies in particular. Most _ but not all _ are ticking off items on what could be called the presidential prep checklist. And they’ve got baggage to deal with. (AP Photo/Phelan M. Ebenhack, File)
