UK Telegraph: After placing second in New Hampshire, Ron Paul proves just how 'dangerous' he can be

At least the foreign press gets it. Here's an insightful excerpt:

National polls show that Romney and Paul are the best placed to beat Obama – Romney leads him by three percent and Paul trails by just one percent. But their coalitions of support are completely different. Romney’s coalition is made up of mainstream Republicans and moderate independents. Paul’s is composed of students, working-class Democrats, ultra-conservative Republicans and antiwar types from across the spectrum. On Tuesday, Paul seems to have won a plurality among independents and it’s surely significant that he performed best in the northern part of New Hampshire, which is rural and post-industrial. In short, the Romney and Paul coalitions cannot be reconciled. But they must be if Romney is to win.

Other than presuming that Romney will be the nominee, the author nails it. Here's the link:

DANGEROUS TO ESTABLISHMENT BUT SAFE FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE"

Ron Paul and Supporters are DANGEROUS TO ESTABLISHMENT BUT SAFE FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

"When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty."

Paul must be the nominee, if the GOP is to win.

..."if Romney is to win"? What would be the point of that?
