Who thinks Ron Paul should run for 2012?Submitted by Kevin Tuma on Sun, 09/07/2008 - 06:43
It's true that he'll be "getting on up there" in age by 2012, but I feel he's still viable.
I also believe, at this writing, that the righteous ass-kicking of Republicans so many people on here were jonesing for will not happen. With Palin and lower gasoline prices, McCain has at least 50-50 odds of winning. The silver lining to that dark cloud is that McCain and Ron Paul are roughly the same age. Hence if a late-seventy-something McCain is presidential, Ron Paul may not be deemed "an old fossil" by the general public.
Whomever we choose, be it Paul, Ventura, Baldwin, et al--we need to make our choice soon and start planning the campaign next year, so the public can get to know our candidate.
