Rand Paul came out in favor

Rand Paul came out in favor of "comprehensive immigration reform", inside the beltway newspeak for illegal alien amnesty. That alone will make the mass media love him. He has also been willing to vote for sanctions on Iran, so that gets him the nod from neocons. And of course, once it was clear his dad was not going to get the nomination, he endorsed Romney, showing the mainstream Republicans that he was willing to play the "I scratch your back, you scratch mine" game.

In short, to the degree than Rand proves to be a disappointment to those of us who like his no-compromises father, he is more acceptable to the establishment.
