The Ron Paul 3rd Place Finish--What Will It Mean for the Future of His Goals?

Venture Beat talks about Why the Internet Was Wrong in predicting a bigger vote total in Iowa:

Good points. These were noted beforehand; the vote seems to have illustrated the problem of predicting elections from just counting the tech savvy. Not surprising.

OTOH see Reason's "The Bright Side of Ron Paul's Third-Place Finish."


But I hope Point 2, especially, is true, and Paul gains influence in that party via his delegates; we badly need his messages to continue to be pushed, even on a reluctant Republican leadership.

Likewise, Point 7) "Ron Paul, and more importantly his ideas, are in it for the long haul."

Finally, I hope this year segues into a Rand Paul future..... The Kid is awesome!
