Paul will have a greater chance of getting to speak.
"This campaign fought hard and won electoral success that the talking heads and pundits never thought possible," Paul said in the statement
issued Monday afternoon. "But, this campaign is also about more than just the 2012 election.... It is about the campaign for Liberty, which has taken
a tremendous leap forward in this election and will continue to grow stronger in the future until we finally win."
No one who follows politics, or pays attention to what Paul has stated this entire campaign, is surprised by this. Paul has never really had any
delusions of winning the nomination. He knows what he is up against. He is trying to build a larger movement, perhaps even a new party.
It's unfortunate that SO MANY paul zealots dont really get any of this. They just treat it like an episode of america idol. Ooooh, if we flood the
chatrooms with Ron Paul comments it means he wins! Oooh!
Paul is a rather brilliant guy, and I like a lot of his ideas. But it's a shame he lets so many of his less savvy followers believe in the
possibility of him actually getting the nomination.
