    as head of his movement.  If Rand Paul got the VP nomination, that would put him in excellent position to become president at some point.  Whether or not the Romney/Rand Paul ticket won the election this year.

    The influence of the [executive] has increased, is increasing, and ought to be diminished.

      that Rand isn't interested in VP. I don't know how credible that is -- but being on a losing ticket as #2 is a good way to derail a promising career.

      I'm really dubious that they will hand the VP slot to some wacko extremist like Rand Paul or Rick Santorum. In the general election, that would have a Palinesque effect. Remember also that Romney has moved to the wacko right to win primaries so he'll have to move at least a tiny bit back toward sanity to run a real race. Saddling him with a right-wing extremist as a VP candidate is going to make that very difficult to do. It would be great because I think either of those guys seals an epic defeat for the ticket.

      Take the "Can't(or)" out of Congress. Support E. Wayne Powell in Va-07. http://www.ewaynepowell.com/
