Mish: An Obama win in November Sets Up Rand Paul 2016Submitted by stu2002 on Wed, 04/25/2012 - 07:51
Should Obama win, Republicans will have the chance to get their heads screwed on straight and nominate a candidate with broad appeal to the center as opposed to broad appeal to the far right.
Rand Paul 2016 has a nice ring to it (assuming he has the common sense to stay away from war-mongering and abortion like his father Ron Paul).
However, Rand Paul (or if you prefer, NJ governor Chris Christie) will only be possible if Obama wins this election.
Thus, short of a miracle finish by Ron Paul, the actual best hope for a sensible Republican candidate who appeals to the middle and the independents just might be four more years of Obama.
