All the other GOP candidates are VERY uninspiring. I think they should take the risk and nominate Paul. With the strength of the Tea Party movement, and his ability to attract people on both sides of the isle with his common sense, I think he's their best shot.
No way in hell would I vote for Rick Perry. I really want a leader focused on action- not getting a large group of people together to try to solve their problems with magic, as Perry will do tomorrow.
If the GOP would drop their draconian social agendas they'd have a LOT more support.
