I'm not an established user so I can't edit Ron Paul's article. Someone who has an established account at wikipedia please change his top photo to this one

IMO it's much more touched up and suitable for the campaign

I second this notion.....that current pic is awful, something looks wrong with his teeth and complexion. The suggested pic is my favorite one.

Any wiki editors out there? Help our guy with a make-over here.

We already changed the picture once, and the Wikipedia people changed it back. You can probably read all about it in the discussion page, but the short story is that the picture has to be 100% public domain.

Ya, they are like that aren't they... can't do like everyone else does and use it and then take it down when they get a DMCA request can they ... *pssh*

I'm trying to track down where it came from, not much luck on the internet, but I sent an email in regards to it, hopefully get something from that...

Why not update the picture with Reagan to the color version that is on the slim jims?

Could you guys put this new image in Wikimedia Commons? I don't know how this is supposed to be done, but the last image was in Wikimedia Commons and could be used in Wikipedias from all languages. I tried updating the image for the Portuguese Ron Paul article but couldn't use it.
