FRONTPAGE please!

Spot on, from a Democratic strategist/operative who normally disagrees with Rand, for that matter!

some highlights:

...it's Paul who has become the clearest voice of the new guard in the Republican Party. And he is effectively driving the entire GOP message right now...Paul has proven that he has the ability to punch his message through in a way that no one else in the Republican Party can.

He's clear...He's principled. He's more ideologically consistent than many people in Washington

...While many senators in his party have held up nominations for petty political reasons, Paul held up John Brennan's nomination over a principled stand that attracted attention from both progressives and conservatives. And as several commentators said after the fact, it's easy to believe that he would have done the same under a Republican president.

*** hmm... that sounds awfully a lot like someone else we know...

Paul's also proven to be a master of both old and new media...He had the entire traditional political press corps and mainstream media focused on him like a laser beam by utilizing one of the most old school tools available to a senator -- the filibuster. Yet he made it feel new.

And at a time when most Americans are starving for leaders willing to cross party lines and find common ground, he is about as far from compromise as you can get.

...Even if Paul doesn't become the nominee, he has the potential to shape the GOP field in a way that few others can at this point. In short, for now, it's Rand Paul's party. And it seems like so many other Republicans are simply trying to figure out how to live in it.

Predictions in due Time...
