Lisa Schiffren at The Corner on "Ron Paul":
I certainly understand the temptation of supporting Ron Paul. That pure, small government, libertarian world view is wonderful — and it is what drew so many Reaganites to politics in the 1970s and 80s, when big government ideology was entirely dominant. It continues to be attractive, even for those, like me, who think we need to finish the job in Iraq, no matter what.
I couldn't agree more. Schiffren thinks a cabinet post would be the perfect spot for Paul:
...If only he had more support out there, he could parlay that into a cabinet position, which he might actually proceed to abolish under a Republican president. That would be an unprecedented accomplishment — though we have dreamed of it for almost 30 years now.
