Agreed! She chatted with me 1:1 in Ames for a few minutes. I thanke her for her supporting her husband on the campaign trail. She made me feel like the only person there, she is so genuine.

Heard there was some fairly recent interviews. Would love to see a Christmas message from Carol.

Somebody needs to deliver a message to the higher-ups in the campaign that they NEED to unleash Carol. She is so well-spoken, so sincere, and incredibly approachable. Unless she's unwilling to do it, I think having her more actively engaged in the campaign image could change the game. I mean, do you get a sense of warmth and love from Callista Gingrich? Or how about Ann Romney? No way. They don't even come CLOSE to Carol. She could be a massive game-changer.

She could attract the Grandma vote! : )A few months ago, I was selling Paul to my Grandmother's retirement community and their biggest question was about his wife. They hadn't seen her and knew nothing about her. They wanted to know more.

It's not so much because these people act in a group - they're as individualistic as you or I - but most of them want to know a candidate on a personal level. Carol will help them connect.

It's cool how her speech structure is a lot like Ron's. She would be a big weapon for the campaign, but better to let them do it in their own time, than to be pressed on it I feel. I'm sure no one is keeping her from talking, so when she believes it is time I'm sure she'll be out there.

That may work with a traditional candidate who gets a fair shake in the media. They are all rallying against us.

Carol's genuine nature blows away that of the wives of Paul's rivals. I could see it only being a net positive if an ad were run with her, it could be very influential to the older voters.

Yeah, I know Campaign school 101 teaches that, but Carol is a different kind of candidate's wife.

Remember, many families are getting back together over the holidays. Carol is very Grandmotherly and that comes across well. I believe people will make the connection and feel more warmly about the candidate.

This wouldn't work with a Michelle Obama or Callista Gingrich, but it will work magic with Carol. Picture this:

Carol (without mentioning who she is) sitting in a cozy chair describing what she's looking for in a candidate - trustworthy beyond reproach, principled, caring and loving to his fellow human being. Then she begins talking about how Ron Paul is the candidate that fits this mold. Then she says, "and that's why I married him - 54 years ago". Then Ron Paul comes in and sits next to her on the arm of the chair and puts his arm around her. Then cut to "I'm Ron Paul and I approve this message."

It's gold.

I went to a small gathering at my grandmother's retirement community and the topic of politics came up. (7 or 8 retirees)

All of these people have their own beliefs and they will argue quite a bit so I don't want to cast them in one segment, but they pay fairly close attention. One thing that is noticeable amongst them all is that they have no knwoledge except what they hear on talk radio and cable news. None of them saw the Bloomberg debate as it was not aired on TV locally.

When asked who they liked for the GOP nomination, Cain was the big winner. I feigned astonishment and asked what they knew about him. They all knew he was the CEO of Godfather's Pizza and was a radio talk show host. I asked if they knew that he was CEO of a lobbyist group, the National Restaurant Association. Did they know he was the chairman of the Kansas City Fed? Did they know he was on the board of Aquila, Nabisco, and Whirlpool? When they all said no, I asked how much do you really know about this guy? Then I slid in, "I know FoxNews is really pushing him right now, but he's a real political insider." They all looked confused because that's not the story they've been getting.

Then we got into the last debate that they missed. I told them about the other candidates issues with 999 and how each of them would probably pay more in taxes under his plan. I also asked them if they thought it would stay at 999 and not 12-12-12, then 20-20-20. I also told them that he looked to Greenspan as his model for Fed Chairman. They looked disgusted and tired - like, "well, who the hell else can we vote for?! We can't let Obama win and you can't tell what Romney will do if he gets elected.

So, then we got into the subject of Ron Paul. They seemed favorable to him but didn't think he could beat Obama. I informed them how he polls against Obama and how he gets the most individual donations and from the military, too. I then told them they wouldn't hear about this from the media - including FoxNews because all of these outlets have their own agenda and it's not about restoring America. (This worked wonders with the liberals in the room!)

After all of this, do you know what they wanted to know about Paul? What is his wife like? What is his family like? DING DING DING - I knew I had them. I talked about how awesome Carol was and about their great-grandchildren. I talked about their 50+ year marriage and that he was originally from Pittsburgh. (Big selling point here).

To keep a long story from getting even longer, they are all at least 'open' to Ron Paul now and would vote for him "if he wins the nomination". (People in PA don't think they play much of a role in the nomination process) I know that with my conversation, when they see Paul on TV, they will have a more positive impression about him. That is huge! If Cain goes down (like I'm expecting) then I'm sure they will go to Paul (unless Fox pushes someone new on them).

The thing I learned is that it is amazing how much power the media has. We can do a lot by going around them, but it's a difficult path. I hope that these folks will continue this conversation with other members of their community.


p.s. If the campaign can get Carol on TV, it will be huge!!! I mean HUGE!!!!

I love the Carol Paul ad idea too....please make this happen. I think too many voters think of Ron Paul is a lonely old man when in fact it's the opposite. He's a huge family guy, and showing Carol to America (or atleast Iowa) and talking about their 54-year marriage will be incredible in transforming minds and votes. Collins I expect you to pass this on to the campaign if they weren't planning on it already.

I agree an ad would be great, but short of that they need to be giving out an 18 wheeler truck load of those cookbooks. Someone gave me one for Christmas and I was amazed. It included a 5 page write up from Carol, "The American Dream, Through the Eyes of Mrs. Ron Paul" plus a letter at the front "From the Desk of Mrs. Ron Paul" - Dear Friends and Family. It also has a ton of family pictures, scriptures, and a recipe from Carol's grandmother. The women would LOVE it. If you haven't seen one you should check it out. This would have been a better mailout for women than the "For Liberty" DVD or the Super Brochure. Imho, getting this in the hand of Iowa women should be a priority.

It's absolute gold. This is a perfect campaign ad, especially around Xmas time and the New Year. Please post this in the Campaign Suggestions forum.

However, instead of cutting to him saying that, maybe he could say it right when he's next to her.

Anyway, lots of ideas can be played with. The important thing is the central concept. CaptUSA, you're the man!

Bump this up. Yes we need this ad!

Yeah, I know Campaign school 101 teaches that, but Carol is a different kind of candidate's wife.

Remember, many families are getting back together over the holidays. Carol is very Grandmotherly and that comes across well. I believe people will make the connection and feel more warmly about the candidate.

This wouldn't work with a Michelle Obama or Callista Gingrich, but it will work magic with Carol. Picture this:

Carol (without mentioning who she is) sitting in a cozy chair describing what she's looking for in a candidate - trustworthy beyond reproach, principled, caring and loving to his fellow human being. Then she begins talking about how Ron Paul is the candidate that fits this mold. Then she says, "and that's why I married him - 54 years ago". Then Ron Paul comes in and sits next to her on the arm of the chair and puts his arm around her. Then cut to "I'm Ron Paul and I approve this message."

It's gold.

Come on campaign, make this add!

I second this motion. She reminds me of my uber-Grandma.

I also endorse the idea for an ad of this nature.
