I like Ted Cruz, but I don't think he could draw from the left like Rand Paul could. The rest of the field doesn't have the ability to keep the coalition together. Paul's problem is going to be the Dick Cheney faction, which has a solid grip on the establishment media in this country. I think that they're going to be willing to take the party down knowing that Clinton gives them everything they want anyway. They will bloody Rand and pave the path for Hillary - but they're going to have trouble with both sides once that happens. Who knows how that shakes out. We live in interesting times...
I can assure you that this segment of the Dick Cheney faction doesn't think Hillary is everything I want. In fact, she's very little of what I want and doesn't start to look at all attractive until it's 2 am, I've had several beers, and she's standing next to Barack Obama.
