1.) Can Rand Paul win the presidency? – To his credit, Rand Paul isn’t dancing around the bush — he openly admits he’s considering a 2016 run for president. But TheDC’s Matt Lewis opines that he can’t possibly win the presidency:
“Some of it is his fault. His comments to Rachel Maddow about the Civil Rights Act of 1964 will be used against him. This, of course, would only confirm the negative narrative his liberal opponents (and their friends in the media) wish to perpetuate. (Note: I get that Rand Paul hates racism — and that his position is a nuanced one. But that won’t matter in our sound bite media culture.) Some of it’s not his fault. It’s not fair to blame him for the sins of his father, but that won’t stop the media or Paul’s political opponents. It might not be fair for Rep. Ron Paul’s racist newsletters to impact his son’s presidential ambitions — but you know they will.”
Perhaps Paul should enjoy the Senate. He may be there for awhile.
