Maybe the RNC should send Ron Paul some money because John Podhertz is RIGHT.
Which brings to mind an interesting scenario for 2008: Could Ron Paul run an independent candidacy for president in 2008 on a libertarian/anti-war/anti-monetarist platform? At this moment, it seems plausible, especially if the Democratic party nominates Hillary Clinton, who is bizarrely considered a neocon hawk by the Left netroots.
And despite Paulâ€™s nominal standing as a Republican â€” and it is nominal â€” wouldnâ€™t his candidacy draw more from disaffected Democrats, as liberal Republican John Andersonâ€™s 1980 third-party candidacy pulled voters away from Jimmy Carter and not from Ronald Reagan?
Works for me.
