It is all about winning the most delegates. (How Paul will do it.)

Great read about Paul's path to the nomination.

"Ron Paul -- poised to finish strong in the Iowa caucuses – has begun to implement a quiet, complex plan to force a long battle with Mitt Romney for delegates to the Republican National Convention in August. His advantages: Experience, organization, and the legacy of the 2010 Tea Party revival, which convinced Republicans that anti-government figures like Paul just aren’t as weird as they’d thought.

Paul is following the roadmap set by Barack Obama's 2008 strategy: Start early, learn the rules, and use superior organization and devoted young supporters to dominate the arcane but crucial party procedures in states your rivals are ignoring -- states where caucuses and conventions that elect the delegates who will ultimately choose the Republican candidate. The plan begins in places like Minnetonka, Minnesota, a Minneapolis suburb where Paul has based his state headquarters, and where staffers have already begun running “mock-auses” -- practice runs for Minnesota’s February 7 caucuses."

I like the part about ID has

I like the part about ID has more delegates than IA, NH, or SC. And Paul could be poised to take 100% of them, rather than spliting them 5-6 ways.
