Ron Paul Prediction
— Editor’s note: In advance of Super Tuesday, WyoFile’s “Sage Grouse” offers this special commentary.
So far The Sage Grouse’s political predictions have been about as useful as a stock tip from a drunk. But, never bashful, here’s another one:
Ron Paul will mount an independent campaign after being rejected by the GOP; he has too much invested in this game to just quit. Why do I keep thinking he looks like Ross Perot; oh, that’s because he will be remembered as another Ross Perot when the incumbent Democrat wins re-election.
Can we create a Spoilers Club: Ross Perot, Ralph Nader, Ron Paul.
George Wallace didn’t make it into the then emerging club where the sole admission criterion is whether you cratered a Presidential election in favor of the candidate you most hated.
Ron Paul is well on the way to membership.
