Look, he didn't win over anyone who is still in love with Bush (which is about 2/3 of Republicans) but that's fine.

It's our job on a grassroots level to wake up people.

But while the other 5 candidates will split that Bush foreign policy fan vote, Paul made it clear that he is the only Republican for anyone who isn't in that camp. And that's about 25-33% of Republicans, and the vast majority of independents.

Right now, it is Paul vs. Obama for that cross-section of people, and he contrasted himself with Obama.

With all the media attention the other 5 have gotten, NONE of them can get to even the 20% mark among polled republicans. And they all showed tonight why. Any of them will get SLAUGHTERED by the democrats in November. Paul offers the Republicans the opportunity NOT to have to embrace Bush once again in 2008.

I agree with this.

He did seperate himself out and he is the only choice for non big government people who dislike the iraq war and our foreign policy.

Yep, and isn't that the plan?

If you are a big government socialist who hates Bush, you are going with Obama or Clinton anyway.

That would make him the true candidate for CHANGE. :)

Ron Paul ALWAYS sets himself apart because his political philosophy is so much different from the rest of the "republicans"
