Rand Paul Wins Kentucky Primary - Next Stop 2012?

Now it seems that the tea-party, well the original ones at least, got one of their own in the Senate.

It will be interesting how Republican Senators conduct themselves when Rand wears his Libertarian views on his sleeve on the floor and speaks of legalization or even expresses his anti-Iraq/Afghanistan positions. Things will get interesting none the less.

He might be one of the more straight up individuals on the Senate, not beholden to many. He could very well likely be a yes vote to approve of spending cuts in all departments and agencies of the U.S. Govn't from Department of Defense of which he would like to reduce spending to the Department of Education, of which he'd like to eliminate.

I'm probably way out ahead but, I could see him continuing his ability to tap into independents and leaning libertarian Republicans and Democrats across the country and run for the White House in 2012.

Game Changer?

If this oil mess doesn't get plugged up in a week, I predict climate legislation getting through Congress much more smoothly much in the way the Wall Street crash enabled these financial reforms making their way through Congress seem to be going with very few hiccups.

See, this administration had a bit of an uphill battle with health care reform. A majority of Americans like their health care. This admin isn't going to have to explain to anyone oil is a problem and every single American felt the repercussions of the banks and financial firms exploding.
