Jesse Benton: "We're looking potentially for Ron to be the vice presidential nominee”Submitted by soleprobe on Fri, 03/16/2012 - 14:05
“Benton denies that speculation (as does Romney) and dismisses a possible prime convention speaking slot as ‘window dressing’."
‘It's something we'd like but it's not terribly important to us," he said. ‘We're looking potentially for Ron to be the vice presidential nominee...we're not looking for easy concessions like a speaking slot.’ He says the campaign would also push for a cabinet position for Paul or major changes to the party platform.”
It sure would be nice to hear Ron Paul's take on this... now everyone thinks Ron Paul is not going to settle for a measly speaking spot... he wants something bigger like a VP slot or a cabinet position.
Here’s Benton on video clearly saying SHORT of a nomination there are various things that could be negotiated for. And one of those things that he clearly said could be negotiated for, besides cabinet positions for Ron Paul supporters, is “the VICE PRESIDENCY.”
Now in the next video Benton doesn’t mention anything about the vice presidency. But he does say something about Ron Paul supporters when he says there’s a CHANCE that Ron Paul supporters might come Romney’s way if Romney talks to them.
And here we have Bruce Fein on radio, Ron Paul's senior policy advisor... he says that Ron Paul will “negotiate for policy positions, cabinet positions, VICE PRESIDENT RUNNING MATE in exchange for delegates who… support Ron Paul….”
