What's Wrong with a Paul-Johnson ticket with Jim Grey Secretary of State (or Chief of Staff)?

I simply cannot believe that the LIbertarian party is not going to take this golden opportunity to put Ron Paul at the head of its ticket for a real chance at seeing the White House and not just being a throw-away vote. It seems like people are only looking at this as a zero sum game where there is an odd man out, namely Jim Grey if Johnson hops down to VP to hitch up to Ron's rising star.

I believe an announcement of this sort should include a firm commitment that if the ticket wins, Grey is guaranteed the next highest constitutional office in the administration, that of Secretary of State, or Secretary of Defense.

On the Leno show tonight it was pretty clear that Dr. Paul had not heard yet what he needs to hear in terms of an offer. He said "not much," to me sounding like "not enough just to be vice president." Okay.

There is plenty of power to go around when you win. The fact that it could become a true three-way race with Dr. Paul at the top of a ticket, and no one is jumping at it, makes me wonder why people even give money to these third parties.

Opportunity is fleeting, and must be seized. Nature and war are unforgiving to those who do not recognize it quickly enough.

Jim Gray is a Judge

Attorney General is where he would make the greatest impact. Would be a great person for the position.

Truly it would be a new era.
