Within hours of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie gracing the cover of a magazine in an illustration of him kissing a baby’s head, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal suggested the party needs bold leaders, not showmen.

“We have enough politicians who try to be celebrities and kiss babies and cut ribbons,” Jindal said…

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a former congressman, repeatedly crossed words with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, challenging Walker’s telling of the history of the Bill Clinton administration. On another panel, Walker mentioned that he’d been in high school at a time when Kasich had voted on a piece of immigration legislation.

“Well, you don’t look that much younger,” Kasich quipped.
