If we all had to choose a democrat and a republican candidate ... Would you choose Ron Paul? Is there anything you like about Ron Paul regardless of your political affiliation? CPAC Straw Poll Results - HUMAN EVENTS I think Obama wins regardless of who runs for the GOP. That being said I think Ron Paul would make the election interesting and he would force a more domestic fiscal policy debate. I think it will be that way anyways - but Paul would help make it more so IMO.
