What does "a speaking role at the convention" really mean?Submitted by kevink on Tue, 05/08/2012 - 23:09
Does it just mean Ron Paul gets heard and then forgotten about? Or does it somehow force Romney to incorporate some of Ron Paul's ideas into his platform? I can't imagine that would be binding and we know he treats getting the Republican nomination as an "etch-a-sketch" to be wiped away in the general election. So, basically, would a speaking role amount to anything significant?
(I'm not saying it won't, by the way. I just have never really followed politics closely until Ron Paul and am legitimately asking).
