They Rejected the platform for what? The Obama platform? BTW Obama won because he received a total of 360,000 more votes in the swing states. That's hardly a mandate. Ron Paul can't win anything - sorry. He's been trying for years and he hasn't won. If he can't win in the Republican primaries, then maybe he should try running in the Democratic primaries and see what his chances look like. Ron Paul's just as much a loser as Mitt Romney.
