No Chance? No Problem, Says Paul.

Ron Paul never could quite claw his way to the top of the Republican presidential pack, but now he’s sitting on the top of several best seller lists with his new book, “The Revolution.”

Thanks to the book’s popularity — not to mention a diminished G.O.P. presidential field — Mr. Paul is riding a small new wave in popularity. Don’t forget, he is still in the presidential race, even though he’s tamped down his campaigning and admitted he has no shot of winning.

All that aside, and the fact that John McCain has earned the delegates needed for the nomination, Mr. Paul managed to capture 8 percent of the vote in the Indiana and North Carolina primaries, and 16 percent in Pennsylvania.

Those numbers play a big part in keeping Mr. McCain’s percentages below 80 percent and show that the G.O.P. is not exactly united around its presumptive nominee.

He admitted he was running his campaign “at a different level” right now, but pointed to a recent big rally in Fort Wayne, Ind., as a sign that “there’s a lot of enthusiasm out there” for his message of small government and constitutional rights.

“It’s a much bigger event that I ever dreamed, it’s a much bigger event than I even wholly understand,” Mr. Paul said. “But I do know that the momentum is slogging on above me as an individual, and I try hard to capsulize what the campaign’s message is all about, and hopefully this will continue.”

Mr. Paul told the crowd gathered at the American Conservative Defense Alliance that between now and September, his campaign has more rallies and events planned to push his message, which never varies from its “obey the Constitution” core.

“Maybe you’ll endorse McCain and surprise everybody,” asked one of the people walking out of the event with us. “That would surprise me, too!” said Paul.
