Dr. Rand Paul and his wife of 18 years, Kelly.
I can see no reason for the people of Kentucky to not support Dr. Rand Paul for the Senate seat in 2010. Talk is that Jim Bunning, a great baseball pitcher but a not so great constitutionalist, will retire. He’s 77 and needs a rest.
I saw Rand speak at his father’s appearance in Nashville in May of 2007. He has the talking points and would make a good ‘designated dissenter’ in the senate just as dad is in the house.
He’s going the Republican route for the votes. I would prefer he be an independent but I can see that this may have the best chance for success.
Even MSNBC gave him some time to announce his proposed run for senator from Kentucky.
Kentuckians could and most likely will do much, much worse if anyone but the ‘favorite son’ gets to be their next senator.
But Rand, just like his father, will not go into the controversy of the 9/11 issue.
