I read that it was "political suicide" for Rand Paul to endorse Romney. I don't think it was "political suicide" at all. He is proving that he will follow the party line. I think a divided nomination convention will select Jeb Bush as savior of the GOP and Rand will run with him as VP. Or Romney may win and pick Rand.

Rand is no Ron Paul. That apple fell too far from the tree.

Then, imagine Jeb or Romney using all those "anti-empire" creditials that I love Ron Paul for to their own advantage. They'll pin bail-out anger on Obama, of course. They'll promise to end immoral drone strikes in Pakistan (the real enemy in that region all along). They'll bring home everyone from Afghanistan including aid workers and let Afghanistan go to hell. They'll be the "peace" candidates, etc.

I hope that if the Obama crowd realize he's going to lose, that, before it looks too desparate, he'll let Hillary run.

The problem is that Republicans want power more than Democrats want justice.

I read an interview of Hillary in which she says after her Secretary of State job she only wants beaches and speeches. I tend to believe that she no longer wants to be President.
