2. I wonder how Paul will handle being a frontrunner?

Seriously, I can see the Teapublican voter triangulating between Gingrich and Romney and start to get behind Ron Paul. He's not a serial adulterer and he's not a liberal mormon. He's not a religious nut (Santorum), or a moron (Perry) or a plain old nut like Bachmann. He's not very exciting, though. Except for his position on the wars, his ideas for domestic policy is pretty much looney tunes, but I don't see that being a deal breaker with the Republican primary voter...hell, they believe they'd love a zero funded federal government.

If Herman Cain (remember him?) could lead the pack, I really don't see why Ron Paul couldn't get traction. But what intrigues me, is he's never been really, really been in the spotlight. He's been relatively shunned in Congress by his own Party and this is his 2nd or 3rd run for President. He's always been ignored by the media pundits and the voters. How will Ron handle center stage and a high pressure / high visibility perch as the frontrunner? Will he maintain the unflappable, uninspiring persona or will we see a completely different guy when people start to really pay attention to his message and start challenging his visions for this country's future?
