Further, Sen. Paul should begin preparing himself by assuming a bigger leadership role in the Senate, if not in the true sense of the GOP hierarchy, at least in taking some tough stands – beginning with the debt ceiling. Sure, we know where he stands, but will he LEADhis party and this country.
Finally, I’m not sure the “legacy fatigue” of the Bush/Clinton (yes, remember Hillary ran for president) eras has fully been washed from the brains of the electorate. If Ron Paul is, in fact, quietly leading this effort -- it’s a power play the American voter may not welcome.
Paul can’t win the 2012 nomination, but he has a cause and a collection of followers looking for its next genuine leader. Perhaps his son is the right person to step into that role. Only time will tell.
