Comment: Ploy

(See in situ)


The "power brokers" who are urging a Bolton run likely don't expect him to win. They are using him to draw a contrast against Paul, and make a "moderate" falling somewhere between Paul and Bolton on foreign policy appear attractive to Republican voters.

Paul is politically savvy though, and can turn out some good national security rhetoric, as he has in the past. I dot think this plot will work as well as they are hoping.
