In reply to comment: Rand can do a couple of things... (see in situ)


Doing (a) would defeat the purpose of endorsing Romney in the first place: i.e. to gain the trust of the Republican rank-and-file. I know some of my fellow Paulites will never accept this, but so be it. I'm convinced most in the Liberty Movement get it, and will support Rand when the time comes.

As for (b), I don't agree that Jesse Benton was a traitor who deliberately undermined the campaign, as some suggest. I also don't think he did a half-bad job. That said, I don't see any reason for Rand to hire him. There are plenty of competent campaign staff floating around. If it makes Paulites happy for it not to be Benton, then yea, Rand, don't choose Benton.
