Yes, Paul's following could be definitely construed as being almost cult-like. However, he does say and attempt to do good things. That's why a
joint ticket between the two would be so interesting because they would balance each other in those much needed aspects.
Although I really do like Warren, a Sanders/Warren ticket would be too politically isolating. In his interview in the Nation, Sanders talked about
basically creating a larger political movement that joined together all the disenfranchised--including the Tea Party and Libertarian movements.
Warren isn't going to bring that support to the table. Whether fairly or not, she's been sullied in the view of the right via the media. Same goes
for Paul really on the opposite side of the spectrum. If Sanders is serious about running and serious about creating a large political movement to
take back the country, he's going to need a running mate that appeals to the other side of the aisle. That'd be Paul. His running mate has to
appeal to the opposite side. Warren would be viewed as just another "leftist".
And it's not like they haven't joined up before: money.cnn.com...
