Based on Jacks arguement

Rand Paul is seeking to game the GOP to bring about positive change by playing nice endorsing Rommney, and not coming off as "extremist" as his uncompromising father.

As sharp as Rand is, or think he is, he is naive to think that he can come off winning against the school GOP/DC good 'ol boys playing their game. I don't think Rand fully realizes what a dangerous risk he is taking. He is playing against hard-core pros who have no problem doing whatever it takes to win. The harder Rand fights them using their methods, the more likely he will go down the slippery slope of compromise.

I believe that's why Ron Paul was so uncompromising in his career in DC. He knew figuratively that if he wrestled with pigs trying to get them to behave as good conservatives should, he would only get dirty himself.

Rand thinks he is being clever, and believes he has the moral strength to hold fire to his chest and not be burned. But sad experience will soon disabuse him of his hubris, and he becomes like salt that loses its savor.
