He has to...

To think that we can get dozens of millions of people behind us for some future presidential candidate is very wishful. Rand Paul is making an effort to become mainstream enough to not be immediately dismissed. He makes a point of clarifying that he thinks Israel is our ally in order to not be thrown down in the GOP when he simultaneously calls for an end to foreign aid to Israel (which runs about 5 Billion dollars annually). I think it's politically strategic to assert alliances with Israel (within the GOP), so as to avoid the false "Anti-Israel", "Anti-Semitic", and "Isolationist" labels.
