Ron Paul Just Mentioned on PBS' NewsHour
On the 7 pm PBS NewsHour a few minutes ago, Gwen Infill was interviewing a couple of political analyst types about second quarter contributions raised by the Presidential candidates. Both analysts stuck to the so-called top tier candidates.
Gwen is a good person and it seemed to me that she began structuring her questions in order to get a Ron Paul mention from either of them. Over and over I thought NOW they will HAVE to mention Ron Paul. They did not.
Finally at almost the end, Gwen just came out and said, 'What about Ron Paul? Didn't he raise a surprising amount of money? One of the analyst-types made some nutty reply that the race was wide open and there was always someone who captured the imagination of some segment or another. Gwen pressed again and said something about the incredible internet presence and the amount of money. The analysts then switched a bit and said, "well, yes we will probably be seeing him around for some time and in the debates."
(Gwen is a closet Ron Paul fan....I could tell!)
