JerseyTim: I'd love to see Randal Paul fielding foreign policy questions at the GOP debate clown shows.

DamnYankees: think McCain
nmrsnr: DamnYankees: think McCainYou mean the son of Admiral McCain? His dad wasn't a politician, but that doesn't mean his name didn't carry serious weight with politicians.

yakmans_dad: Didn't Rick Santorum lead in some early poll in 2012? Maybe we should still take him seriously.
MattStafford: I'd love to see Rand Paul be the nominee and come down to the left of the Democratic candidate with regards to foreign policy, surveillance state, and the drug war.

vernonFL: Look at the other GOP hopefuls. Rand Paul is a better candidate than Cruz or Trump or Palin or Cain.In the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king.
Aquapope: For comparison, here's an AUG2010 version of this poll. CNN/ORC was right about Romney getting the nomination, but considering that whole field of candidates was a clown convention and RMoney was more robot that clown, that makes sense.Huntsman was the only sane, reasonable GOP choice, so of course he had no chance whatsoever.
CanisNoir: Republicans could do worse than a Rand Paul nomination
DamnYankees: On the plus side, if Paul wins the nomination, it will extend the GOP's "haven't elected a President who wasn't a beneficiary of political nepotism" streak to 32 years, at the least. And in that period I think McCain and Dole are the only nominees who didn't have the same benefit.

monoski: CanisNoir: Republicans could do worse than a Rand Paul nominationHis anti-military stance is a non-starter in the general election
Bareefer Obonghit: "It is time to take Rand Paul seriously."-Rand Paul
Dr Dreidel: // wait, you're closing a base in WHICH district?// fark that, gimme MOAR
Corvus: I actually am. I am afraid that he has the best shot Republicans have for the White House.Also what is scary to me is I know lots of people who wrongly think he is a social liberal and anti-government intrusion. (which he is not)
