Anyone who runs for President HAS to come from the political circle. As Novise said, the difference with Ron Paul is that his integrity is
beyond reproach. He has never taken money from special interests and has always voted strict Constitution. Still, he is a ten-term Congressman so
has significant political/legislative experience.
Now suppose we had a very well-read plumber in Des Moines who wants to be President. He has great ideas and knows his stuff. How could he possibly
get elected? He has no experience in the political system, no credibility, no track record to be assessed --- just a pig-in-a-poke as it were.
Notwithstanding the fact that he might be a brilliant statesman, our plumber can't be vetted. Ron Paul can.
