I think

what Rand Paul is doing is playing the game, not in a "do anything to get elected" sense, but in the sense he won't rock the boat when he doesn't have to.

The Constitution is clear on States rights and Rand Paul does say he's a Constitutional conservative. He's leaving it up to people to connect the dots. At the same time he isn't giving opponents attack targets to distract from what he is trying to do.
