Rand is an interesting case... The cynic in me thinks he is riding into the libertarian camp waving his father's name as a truce banner but not really meaning it, and the optimist in my thinks he is "playing the game" so to speak, something his old man never really got right. The realist in me thinks Jeb Bush is going to get the nomination and nobody with Paul as their last name will ever get through a primary anyways.
Is Rand perfect? No, of course not. Is Rand a politician? Yes. Does Rand stink as much as the rest of the pack? Mmmm... I would say no. I promised myself I would never hold my nose when I vote, and I think I'll be able to do that with Rand.
