Once again, in a voice as loud as California, Republican voters have voiced their desire for the next GOP contender to be none other than Congressman Ron Paul. So, with a calling this clear, what other candidate would the establishment media want to go up against the incumbent Barack Obama for president? Is it Paul's push for an American return to the gold standard, and elimination of the Fed and the IRS, which scared the powers-that-be into ignoring his Ames debate victory in early August? In spite of a clear and evident victory, Fox News stopped linking to that particular result fast, for reasons unknown. Even after he came in third place in New Hampshire, media members seemed to try to keep his name out of the discussion. Can the mainstream media stand up a wall of willful resistance to respectful consideration of a Republican candidate who not only wins the friendship of celebrities like Vince Vaughn and Barry Manilow? Maybe they can, for a while. But when the people who comprise the entertainment itself begin to recognize the value of his plan to retain our Constitutional sovereignty as a people, it is for the freedom which allows for the expression of their art. In light of the blatant honesty of a conscientious candidate, the mad vappings of other Republican hopefuls sound more like the "same-old, same-old," we all too often get from elected officials. Being in the impossible-to-ignore category, now the most other candidates can hope for is their media-based supporters can go for hit pieces on Paul.

As you said, every little bit helps and yahoo is a pretty well established news site, so I'm pleased to see this.
It is true that Ron Paul is gaining momentum, especially as things in the States seem to get worse (and people begin to protest like in NYC).
In my opinion it's a race both against reaching a critical mass of supporters, and actually being able to get an honest electorate process (i.e. no fudging of the numbers)
