"I think a lot of governors, when they get to this point, especially those that served two terms that it's time to start thinking about legacy building and I think that's what a lot of this comes down to."
Jindal was in Shreveport and Monroe last week highlighting his economic development achievements.
Alford says there are some good and bad things associated with Jindal's time in office and the governor will focus on the good in the last weeks of his term. But he questions whether the governor's tour will sway the history books.
"Will he be allowed to write his own chapter in that long saga that is Louisiana political history? I have a hard time believing that he'll be able to have too much influence on that."
