Ron Paul as a wild card?
Rasmussen's latest poll results might tempt candidate Ron Paul(R-TX) into a third-party run.
Interesting results from a 3-way race involving Hillary Clinton, Rudy Giuliani and Ron Paul. From The Corner at NRO
They don't match [Ron Paul] up with anyone specific. It would be interesting to see how pro-lifer Ron Paul would fare:Is a Ron Paul third party run in the cards? The resulting electorial results would almost ensure that none of his campaign goals would ever become law. This would also almost ensure a Hillary Clinton presidency in 2008. Bill Clinton had Ross Perot; might not Hillary Clinton have Ron Paul? They're cracking open the bottles of Excedrin over at the RNC headquarters.
One of the most interesting possibilities floating around out there is that, after the primaries are over, Paul could offer an antiwar, pro-life, third-party alternative to either Rudy Giuliani or Hillary Clinton (in 1988 Paul ran for president as a member of the Libertarian Party). If his fundraising continues at this pace, he might be tempted to do it. Something tells me it’s a possibility the Clinton camp isn’t exactly dreading.
