...He's going to have to do something really impressive over the next few years if he wants to regain my trust. Basically, EVERY SINGLE vote he casts has to be how Ron would have voted; No war, no sanctions, no taxes, no free pass for the FED. Outside of that, no hobnobbing with neocons, no couching his positions in militarist rhetoric.
If he can manage that for the next few years (which is doubtful) then I'll support him. If he is simply the least bad of a hundred Senators (not a high bar at all) he'll have to seek support elsewhere.
