I was going to post something similar before the forum went down. Basically Rand gets a chance to appeal to their audience. Would it be great to ignore the Levin's and Hannity's? Yes, but unfortunately they have a large audience to appeal to. That is why Ron and Rand put up with them.
.- Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead"Every great new thought was opposed. Every great new invention was denounced. The first motor was considered foolish. The airplane was considered impossible. The power loom was considered vicious. Anesthesia was considered sinful. But the men of unborrowed vision went ahead. They fought, they suffered and they paid. But they won."
I blog at Red State Eclectic, and I tweet here,.
Moving the ball down the field means working with even unpleasant people you dislike if you agree on something, as you'd know if you ever listened to any of Ron's speeches on the importance of building coalitions.

“If I try to be a pretty good libertarian I get attacked by the left, by the right, and by the libertarians.” - Rand Paul
Violence will not save us.
Let us love one another, for love is from God.
If you're going to walk into a lion's den you're going to have to tame a few lions. You may want to hit one over the head with a stick. Maybe one bit your fathers arm off. Truth is you're probably going to lose more then an arm if you do it.
Now you may think "Respect" if Rand goes in swinging but he knows he can't do it alone and we're not bringing enough people to the table. Like it or not, he's got to make friends to be effective in any manner. If that's Rand selling out then point to the voting record and let him know when he votes a way you do not like.
Libertarians - trying to improve the world through ideas and free markets rather than legislation and prisons.

The Federalist Papers, No. 15:
Except as to the rule of apportionment, the United States have an indefinite discretion to make requisitions for men and money; but they have no authority to raise either by regulations extending to the individual citizens of America.

He says he has disagreements with Rand Paul on national security matters.
He says he's a Reagan conservative, not a democracy promoting neocon.
Cocoa and Dystopian should be banned from posting in this forum. We've been putting up with their Rand bashing for months now. The queen moderator just sits on her hands and allows it, which is disgusting. Go back to that cease-pool that has become the Daily Kucinich. That's where Rand haters are welcome apparently. Dystopian has been doing it ad nauseam since he joined the forum.

Levin: "Let me say this, you're (Rand) a fascinating man to me and I want to have you back on more often. I think you make some very compelling arguments and you did a terrific job today, so I salute you."
It's entirely possible that by having him back on he can identify more disagreements they have on foreign policy and thus try to give him the Ron status to his listeners.
On a side note, Megyn Kelly is currently talking about Rand on Fox.
