20. Paul is doing everything he can to "game" the system.

Nobody thinks he can get the nomination, but he will have a lot of influence. I suspect he has at least a couple of goals. First, he will insist that the Republican platform includes auditing the Fed - I'm okay with that, actually.

Secondly, I think he will try to get a VP nomination - but not for himself - for his son, Rand. If he can deliver the Paulista votes, Rand would be a decent VP candidate - younger, and without all the wounds and primary baggage that the other Presidential candidates have suffered during the primary. Also, a young VP would be a strong future candidate for President...
